An excerpt from an article in the Online edition of the Washington Post newspaper reads:
" President Obama was sworn in for a second term on Monday morning, using his inaugural address to cast modern-day priorities--fighting climate change, welcoming immigrants, and ensuring gay rights--as the extension of a long struggle to live up to the Founders’ ideals.
“Being true to our founding documents does not require us to agree on every contour of life. It does not mean we all define liberty in exactly the same way or follow the same precise path to happiness,” Obama said, speaking to a flag-waving crowd that spilled down the Mall."
Also, In other news, This is a day of celebrating the life and times of Dr Martin Luther King, A civil Rights activists who fought for the rights of all Americans to live peacefully amongst one another.
