Inauguration: Barack Obama tells US to seize the moment

Barack Obama has told the American people to "seize the moment", in a speech in Washington DC inaugurating his second term as US president.

President Obama: "My fellow Americans, we are made for this moment, and we will seize it"

He issued a plea for political unity while embracing liberal causes such as immigration reform, gay rights and the fight against climate change.
Mr Obama, 51, who is the 44th US president, was sworn in for his second term by Chief Justice John Roberts.
Hundreds of thousands of people crammed the ceremony on the National Mall.
Former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, along with dozens of senators, congressional leaders and other dignitaries, attended the event at the US Capitol.
In his inaugural address, the Democratic president laid out his vision for the next four years and repeatedly declared: "Our journey is not complete."

WE all hope you're right Mr Obama!
Go ahead, don't give up the dreams you believe in!
