A proud day for Americans

It is a proud day for Americans witnessing the peaceful transfer of power in our democracy.

Standing on the Capitol steps overlooking the mall where women marched for the right to vote, and where the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther, Jr. spoke of his dream,

Kamala Harris shattered gender and racial barriers to be sworn-in as Vice President of the United States.

In his first official address to the nation, the 46th President, Joe Biden, described his vision and made a plea to the American people.

“Together write a story of hope, not fear. Of unity, not division. Of light, not darkness. A story of decency and dignity, love and healing, greatness and goodness.”

And to the world he declared that the United States “will lead not merely by the example of our power, but by the power of our example.”

Following the new President’s inspiring words and call to action, all were awed by 22-year old Amanda Gorman, Poet Laureate, reciting her poem for the occasion.

“…We are striving to forge a union with purpose…

…And so we lift our gazes not to what stands between us

but what stands before us…

…The hill we climb

If only we dare..

…We will not march back to what was

but move to what shall be

A country that is bruised but whole,

benevolent but bold,

fierce and free…”
