How refreshing to see a photo of the Bible on the front page, and center-stage, during President Obama’s swearing in, and again on page A5 showing Vice President Biden’s tatered Bible [“The dawn of a second term,” Jan. 21]. Even though they may only appear every four years for inaugurations, kudos for reminding us how rooted is our country’s foundation and legacy to such moral truths and principles. How remarkable and providential that the honoring of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. coincided with the inauguration.

May we not shelve the Bible for another four years, rather hold it close in mind as we move forward morally and justly in this 21st century.
