The broken glass was in the windows of the United States Capitol, but the mob did not just shatter the windows of the Capitol, they shattered the ideas we took for granted.

The good thing is that he will soon be as irrelevant as an old tweet. But what are we to make of those elected officials who have enabled his lies and his treachery?

We need to heal not as Republicans or Democrats, but as Americans. 现在, to begin this process, no matter what your political affiliation is, I ask you to join me in saying to President-elect Biden, ‘President-elect Biden, we wish you great success as our president. If you succeed, our nation succeeds. We support you with all our hearts as you seek to bring us together.

And to those who think they can overturn the United States Constitution, know this — you will never win. 总统当选人拜登, we stand with you today, tomorrow and forever in defense of our democracy and those who would threaten it.’
