Obama's inaugural theme: 'Faith in America's Future'

'Our nation has faced countless challenges throughout its history'

(The Hill) President Obama’s second inaugural ceremony will be focused around the theme of “Faith in America’s Future,” congressional organizers announced Thursday.

The inaugural program will pay tribute to the nation’s “perseverance and unity,” the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies said in a press release. And the ceremony will mark the 150th anniversary of the completion of the Capitol Dome in 1863. Construction on the dome was threatened during the American Civil War, but work continued despite a budget strained by the costs of the war.
