Among the millions who woke up before the sun was up in Washington DC, were a few kansans, not knowing what to expect.
Beth King told KWCH over the phone, "When you're on a street, a wide street full of people, and as you're walking you're taking baby steps and then you just stop and stand and it's person to person a block wide. "It's hard to describe."
King was at Reagan's first inauguration but said it didn't compare to Tuesday's ceremony. The National Mall was packed with people trying to hear our new president's message.
King adds, "Interestingly, people were very quiet. They were listening. They wanted to hear the message and in a crowd that large I don't think you get silence very often."
