Photo Prayer 2021-01 -- Inauguration Day

Like Jimmy Carter, Joe Biden does not inspire fervor. Am I naive to think he listens to many but then chooses what is best for our country? That, because he favors no faction, none will favor him? That he will neither inflame his followers nor make his opponents howl? If we are to be fervent, let it be for the humdrum — for the rule of law, for equality under the law, and for individual rights in the face of the greater good. Let us rejoice in the many colors of our skins and in the many hues and shades of our political spectrum. Let us make real the promises of democracy. Let us make sacrifices, not sacrifice others. The discouraging say we cannot make a difference. We say we can. We say — it is a certainty.
