Anyone in the world

這個深具影響力的詞串聯起哈利波特、拜登、和2021年!
This powerful word connects Harry Potter, Joe Biden, and 2021!

就是 'crucible嚴峻的考驗' 一詞!
The word is 'crucible'!

在就職典禮上
In his inauguration

拜登稱此刻是 'crucible for the ages 時代的考驗 '
Biden called this time a 'crucible for the ages'

“crucible 坩堝” 是用來鎔解物品的杯狀器皿
A crucible is a cup used for melting things

亦可指嚴峻的考驗
It can also mean a severe test

如哈利波特 "Goblet of Fire火盃的考驗"
such as the "Goblet of Fire" in Harry Potter

"The Crucible" 同時也是知名的戲劇(中譯:激情年代)
"The Crucible" is also a famous play

關於指控女巫的女孩們
about girls accusing to be witches

這世界已歷經強烈的考驗
The world has been tested by violence

歷經分歧
by division

和大流行疾病
and by pandemic

但就如同坩堝中的金屬
but like the metal in the crucible

如同我們面臨的任何考驗
like any test we face

我們終究會更強大、百鍊成鋼
we are remade stronger
