TIME TO HEAL WOUNDS

Time to heal wounds in the United States

By Alessandro Gisotti VaticanNews.va


The United States is still shaken by what happened on 6 January during the assault on Capitol Hill, which resulted in the death of 5 people. It was an unprecedented event that dramatically manifested the divisions present in the American society, and which go beyond the political dimension. This polarisation has deepened in recent years, and many observers say it is not likely to disappear in the short term.


It is, therefore, no coincidence that the theme chosen by the new president, Joe Biden, for his swearing-in ceremony is "America United". This need for national unity is widely felt across the board by Americans, many of whom are aware that only united will it be possible to face the pandemic and the serious economic crises which have ensued.
