An inauguration celebration for all

To the editor: Wednesday night’s broadcast of the spectacular inauguration festivities was a true joy and an inspirational demonstration of a USA that I feel proud to be a part of.

The celebration is a good example of a COVID-19-forced change that is actually an improvement — a change that should continue in the future. A public celebration, rather than inaugural balls for an elite few is more democratic, inclusive and a better use of taxpayer money. A fitting beginning for a new era.
