What Was Your Favorite Moment of the Presidential Inauguration?
There were several highlights during the inauguration ceremony. Tell us what you found to be most memorable.
President Barack Obama was sworn in today for a second term in office.
The day was historic in that Obama is one of just a handful of men who have been re-elected to lead the United States.
But also that his swearing in fell on the annual celebration of Martin Luther King Jr's birthday and in the 50th anniversary year of King's March on Washington to deliver the "I Have a Dream" speech.
Today's festivities included a 19-minute speech from the president in which he gave a shout out to southeast Michigan when he said, "Our journey is not complete until all our children from the streets of Detroit to the hills of Appalachia to the quiet lanes of Newtown, know that they are cared for, and cherised, and always safe from harm."
It also included performances from celebrity singers and an inauguration poem.
