SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Jan. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Joumana Kayrouz, the prominent Michigan Accident Attorney recently named one of the state's Top Lawyers for 2012, received an exclusive invitation to attend the inauguration of President Barack Obama and the President's Inauguration Ball that took place in Washington D.C. on Monday, Jan. 21.
Ms. Kayrouz, who has met personally with President Obama during his several past visits to Michigan, described the 57th American inauguration of a president as an "uplifting experience" that serves as a testament to the nation's commitment to Democracy and freedom.
"The inauguration is a reminder that America is one of the few countries where power is transferred or, in this case, continued in a non-violent and peaceful process as the result of a system in which the people have a direct say on selecting their leadership," Kayrouz said.
"It was exciting to watch as the President and Mrs. Obama drove and walked down Pennsylvania Avenue following the ceremony to install the president to his second term in office in a public celebration that everyone can enjoy freely."
Positioned in a reserved section in front of the podium where Obama was sworn in to office using both Abraham Lincoln's Bible and the Traveling Bible used by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., Kayrouz said Obama's speech was "inspiring and bold. He said a lot. His speech had a different tone this time from his inaugural speech that he gave in January 2009."
Kayrouz also said she was moved by opening remarks offered by New York Senator Chuck Schumer who focused on the Statue of Freedom affixed to the top of the Congressional dome.
Kayrouz was invited to attend the Presidential Ball and the Michigan Ball which featured some of the state's most influential political, government and community leaders.
"It was a great honor for me to be invited to attend the inauguration, the Presidential Ball, and the Michigan Ball," Kayrouz said.
