MY FELLOW CITIZENS: No people on earth have more cause to be thankful than ours, and this is said reverently, in no spirit of boastfulness in our own strength, but with gratitude to the Giver of Good, Who has blessed us with the conditions which have enabled us to achieve so large a measure of well-being and happiness.

Roosevelt had an optimistic tone to his second inaugural address. He speaks of past successes, but warns that any success in the future will only come with hard work. He commented on how any weak nation shall have nothing to fear from the US, but warns that America will not be the subject for insolent aggression. The President cited good relations with the world as being important, but relations among Americans as most important. He admitted that the Founding Fathers could not have foreseen certain problems that plagued the nation, but assures that these are problems that all great nations face. Roosevelt recognized that the industrial age made it difficult for Americans to adapt to the complexities of modern life, but assured Americans that the technological innovations brought tremendous change in everyday life. He spoke about the difficulty of self-government, and warns that should America fail, it would shake all free nations to their foundations. Roosevelt called this a heavy responsibility, to Americans, to the world, and to the unborn generations. He gave no reason to fear the future or unseen problems, but encourages the problems be met head-on. In his closing, Theodore Roosevelt clarified that the problems facing Americans differs from those of the Founding Fathers, but insisted that these problems be met with the same spirit.[2]

Inaugural Parade

"The inaugural celebration was the largest and most diverse of any in memory—cowboys, Indians (including the Apache Chief Geronimo), coal miners, soldiers, and students were some of the groups represented." Some footage of the parade exists. [1]
