Oprah Winfrey made her way through screaming crowds to her seats in section 6 on the West Front. She hugged Caroline Kennedy on her way in, and actor Samuel L. Jackson, both sitting in the same front row of the section.

Asked her feelings about being here, Oprah said, "It's beyond the dream. We're just here feeling it with the throngs of people. It's amazing grace personified."
