Transition of power comes in 59th Inaugural CeremoniesJanuary 21, 2021
The transition of power took place in Washington, D.C. yesterday when Joseph R. Biden became the 46th President of the United States. It was also a historical day as Kamala Harris became the first woman and first woman of Black and South Asian descent to take the oath as our Vice President.
The transition of power in the United States often reflects a win for one side of the political aisle but generally represents a time for optimism for everyone. Regardless of your position, the start of a new presidential administration represents a time of change and redirection for our country.
The last four years have been wrought with political and ideological division not seen in years, division which culminated in the events that took place at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th.
I congratulate President Biden and Vice President Harris on their inauguration and hope that this day starts us on the path to healing that we so desperately need.
