There is no denying that President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have their work cut out for them after this 2021 Inauguration. With such a strong backing from voters, there are a lot of eyes on them. I genuinely applaud their bravery in taking on such a taxing job. It will be stressful and at times they will feel beyond exhausted, but the future of this country is in their hands.
The 2021 Inauguration symbolized the hope that a lot of us Americans still have. To many of us, this is the place that we were born and to others this is the place that has been called home for many years. With so much civil unrest and the strong, political divide that has led to the destruction of the Capital, it is safe to say that we have a long way to go.
For awhile it felt like we had taken many steps back from the Black Lives Matter movement to the Defund the Police protests. It became globally apparent that we are not ONE nation, founded under God. We are a nation that has been broken into a thousand pieces by hate and destruction.
President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris won’t be able to completely fix all the issues, even if they were to run for a second term. The damage is too great. What they can do is put us on the right path to mending what has been broken in the hopes that those who run after them will do the same.
The 2021 Inauguration was like a grand big, bow that opened the door to two distinct paths. One of them being destruction and the other being a better America. It will take the effort of an entire nation, but a nation can only follow a strong leader.
We can all let out that breath that we have been holding in since President Biden started running in the election, but we cannot lose sight of the bigger picture. We are in such an important time in history and we have to decide what we want to leave for those in the future. Every decision made not only affects each and every one of us, but those that come after us.
It feels good to close the door on what was, but the future is completely fogged at this point. The United States of America needs to take their name more seriously. We are a melting pot of so many different cultures and ethnicities and we can ONLY succeed if we genuinely accept and understand all those cultures. It is then that we will be not only united, but the greatest nation in the world.
I wish the new President and Vice President nothing, but the best and I pray that God gives them the utmost patience and clarity of mind for these next four years.
