Washington, United States of America. On January 21, 2013 Barack H. Obama will be sworn in as President of the United States of America for a second term. The event will be a special one because the U.S. President will be sworn in by using two symbolic Bibles (it is said that a third Bible, a personal one, will be placed also). The Bible of Abraham Lincoln and the Bible of Martin Luther King Jr.
January 21 marks the federal celebration in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. The first American President to be sworn in having his hand on two Bibles was MW Grand Master Harry Truman 33° (the 33rd President of the United States of America), in 1949.
