Description

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. “Our nation has faced countless challenges throughout its history, and each time we have come together as Americans and moved forward with renewed strength,” said Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.), chairman of the JCCIC, in a statement. “During the 57th Presidential Inauguration, Americans from across the country will gather beneath the Capitol Dome to celebrate our history, take measure of how far we have come, and look towards our future with hope and determination.”
