|1/20/21 President Biden and Vice President Harris (live video)|
Four years ago, I refused to watch the presidential inaugural ceremony. He was not my president, and I would not acknowledge him in that office. It was probably the only inauguration I’ve missed as an adult.
Yesterday I woke feeling hopeful and optimistic that President Joe Biden will move us forward in the right direction again. Watching Kamala Harris being sworn in as the first Asian American and African American woman Vice President filled me with pride in my country again (for the first time in four years). It feels good. Our troubles are not over, but it feels good to have leaders again.
