President Dalia Grybauskaitė was recently sworn into the office for the second time and from that moment her second term as the Head of State began. Everyone in Lithuania was able to watch the inauguration ceremony, to hear the words in anticipation of the way ahead. This day was the boundary between the two tenures of the head of state. So far, none of the Lithuanian presidents, after Lithuania became independent, had the opportunity and thus the responsibility to continue the work for a second consecutive term. After 10 years, when looking back at one's legacy, it will no longer be possible to say "I ran out of time".
