Inauguration Day 2013
Today I am humbled to be in our nation's capital to witness the second-term inauguration of our President Barack Obama. His re-election, leadership and what he stands for make me confident that we can rise to meet the great challenges before us.
Although national division and social injustice still exist, we have learned from experience that our greatest triumphs often came during our darkest hours. I have faith that Republicans and Democrats in Washington, D.C., will work together and bridge the partisan divide to build a more perfect union. We will rise above our challenges and seek to fulfill the full potential of our Constitution.
After a day spent reflecting on how far we've come, now is a time for renewal. As President Obama repeats his oath of office, I hope you will join me in renewing our commitment to our founding principles and cooperating together to move America forward. I am excited to have the privilege to represent you and Colorado's interests in the 113th Congress.
