Today was such a peaceful day.
My television stayed on CNN from the time I woke up this morning and will likely remain on until I lay down for bed.
I watched former President Trump as he took the low road by leaving the White House early, not attending the inauguration and being what one would describe as a “sore loser”.
While I thought that might sour the day, I was uplifted by watching VP Kamala Harris and President Joe Biden and their families arrive at the Capitol. It felt…
I think that’s the best way to describe how I feel; refreshed that we now have new and fresh faces in office. I’ve never been one to feel like one person or one President can fix and make this country the absolute best, and I’m not saying that Biden/Harris will make all the right decisions in the next four years. What we do know, is that we could definitely be getting much needed reprieve from what we have been dealing with from the past four years.
Today, I am proud to see history be made again. My voice was heard when the first African American President was elected into office. And today, I watched as I saw the first woman, and woman of color be sworn into a position that has never been held by a woman. An overwhelming emotion came over me when I watched that; knowing that such an achievement has come to fruition on this day.
It makes you realize how much greatness is possible now, and just how high you can reach when you set your sights on how you want your life to go.
I cannot wait to see how the next four years will go.
