Amid rampant civil unrest, Wednesday’s outdoor ceremony proved our new president will not be bowed by threats to democracy. Biden appealed to us to work as a team, with our eyes on the future. It's an invitation not to be denied.

The best thing about the president’s inauguration speech is that it was classic Joe Biden.
Plainspoken. Upbeat. And full of heart.
Yes, we face challenges. But we can not let them be our undoing.
