The presidential inauguration is a monumental and significant point in American history as millions gather in Washington, D.C. to celebrate the election or re-election of the president. On Jan. 21 billions will watch worldwide as Barack Obama is again sworn in as the president of the United States for another four-year term. This year’s theme, “Faith in America’s Future” will prove to be more momentous than ever as America trudges past recent hardships.
