Swearing In Ceremony
The official swearing in ceremony was on April 18th, a week after Flag Day. I hadn't been to the main State building, so it was quite inspirational to walk the halls with so much history.
We got lost on our way to the reception, so a person helped by letting us into the Secretary of State's secure hallway to use her elevators. I think the baby gave us some sympathy points.
After a very nice reception, we adjourned to the main auditorium where all State employees were sworn into the State Department by John Negroponte after a few inspirational words.
