President Obama used his second inaugural address to call for a new spirit of unity to solve the nation’s challenges, from economic disparity to gay rights to climate change, urging a recommitment to the country’s founding principles of equality.
“Now, more than ever, we must do these things together, as one nation, and one people.”
What is your reaction to the speech and the challenge. Is unity still possible in these hyper-partisan times? What is the role of the faith community?
