By Larry Smith

Above: a very moving video of Ella Mae Cheeks Johnson, the retired social worker who, at the age of 105, confined to a wheelchair, traveled from Cleveland to Washington, DC to witness Barack Obama take the oath of office on January 20, 2009. She died last week, March 24, at the age of 106.

Today is the publication of a book about her life, It Is Well with My Soul: The Extraordinary Life of a 106-Year-Old Woman by Ella Mae Cheeks Johnson with Patricia Mulcahy. Look for more on this amazing life story next week on SMITH.
