WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says that a decade of war is now ending and an economic recovery has begun.

America's possibilities are limitless, the president said in his inaugural address. He said we will seize this moment if we seize it together.

Obama said that America can't succeed when only a few at the top do well and a growing many can barely make it. The country's prosperity must rest on a rising middle class, he said.

Obama spoke after taking the public oath of office Monday for his second term.
