The 57th Presidential Inauguration theme, "Faith In America," was echoed in President Barack Obama's inaugural address from the west side of the U.S. Capitol Jan. 21 to a crowd that filled the National Mall. The president began his second term by asking the nation to act with "passion and dedication" to broaden equality and prosperity at home, nurture democracy around the world and combat global warming. He concluded with these words: "Let us answer the call of history and carry into an uncertain future that precious light of freedom."
