2021年乔·拜登就职演讲

“History, faith and reason show the way, the way of unity. We can see each other not as adversaries but as neighbors. We can treat each other with dignity and respect, we can join forces, stop the shouting and lower the temperature. For without unity, there is no peace, only bitterness and fury.”

历史、信仰和理性为我们指明道路。那是团结之路。我们可以把彼此视为邻居,而不是对手。我们可以有尊严地相互尊重。我们可以联合起来,停止喊叫,减少愤怒。因为没有团结就没有和平,只有痛苦和愤怒。

这个伟大的国家会一如既往地坚持下去,它会复兴和繁荣起来。因此,让我首先表明我的坚定信念:我们唯一恐惧的就是恐惧本身——一种莫名其妙、丧失理智的、毫无根据的恐惧,它把人转退为进所需的种种努力化为泡影。

我们对任何人也不怀恶意,我们对所有的人都宽大为怀,坚持正义;上帝既使我们认识正义,让我们继续努力向前,完成我们正在进行的事业;包扎起国家的创伤,关心那些为战争作出牺牲的人,关心他们的遗孀和孤儿——尽一切力量,以求在我们自己之间,以及我们和所有的国家之间实现并维护一个公正和持久的和平。
