Obama's Inaugural Address: 'We Must Pick Ourselves Up'

For our present time Obama said: "In the face of our common dangers, in this winter of our hardship, let us remember these timeless words. Let it be said by our children's children that when we were tested we refused to let this journey end, that we did not turn back nor did we falter; and with eyes fixed on the horizon and God's grace upon us, we carried forth that great gift of freedom and delivered it safely to future generations."

Historians and pundits will now declare whether Obama's address met, exceeded or fell short of the high expectations so many had for it. But for the chilled thousands who braved this bright but wintry day, Obama's words were warming and welcoming.
