A Joyous Day!
It has been a long 4 years under the Trump administration. A majority of Americans felt the same way as I do. Once the announcement that Joe Biden would become the 46th President of the United States, celebrations erupted everywhere across the nation. I was so overwhelmed, tears were streaming. The thought that we would have the current president for another 4 years was depressing and I wasn’t the only one! I’m not saying the changes will happen overnight but we are now set back on the right track, IMHO. A healing path which this country desperately needs.
History was also made in other ways too. Joe Biden’s bid for the presidency, this was his 3rd time. He will be the oldest person to be sworn in as president on January 20th 2021. Joe Biden had the most popular votes in election history! We needed calm at a time like this with the Covid-19 still raging, racism and a nation so divided. Meanwhile, his running mate, Kamala Harris, is the first woman to be elected as the VP and she is also a woman of color. She broke the “Glass Ceiling.” This is definitely HISTORY IN THE MAKING!
Thank you to all who helped get them there especially Stacey Abrams, Majority Whip James Clyburn to name a couple. I know there are many, many more…God bless them all to getting them to the finish line. And now, for a new beginning. Heads of many foreign countries sending in their best wishes already. It was as the song said, “POWER TO THE PEOPLE.”
