(WDAY TV) -- President Obama has begun his second term saying our country's citizens represent our greatest hope.

The nation's first black president honored two of his heroes. He was sworn in on bibles used by Abraham Lincoln and Dr. Martin Luther King. In his inaugural address, he talked about the challenges that face 21st century America.

Obama says, "We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations."

The president's speech was followed by a luncheon and a parade. Tonight there will be two official inaugural balls down from 11 in 2009.
