Obama Inaugural: 'Our journey is not complete'


President Barack Obama began his second term amid a massive celebration Monday in Washington, D.C., where 700,000 people flocked to hear him speak on the National Mall.

“This generation of Americans has been tested by crises that steeled our resolve and proved our resilience,” Obama said in his inaugural address. “A decade of war is now ending. An economic recovery has begun. America’s possibilities are limitless, for we possess all the qualities that this world without boundaries demands.”

NPR has the transcript of the address.

MPR offered a live blog of the event. The Star Tribune has photos of the ceremony and celebrities.
