INAUGURATION DAY JANUARY 20, 2021

PRESIDENT BIDEN AND VICE PRESIDENT HARRIS

"To those 400,000 fellow Americans -- mothers and fathers, husbands and wives, sons and daughters, friends, neighbors, and co-workers. We will honor them by becoming the people and nation we know we can and should be."

The focus of Biden's inaugural speech was moving forward as a nation to heal from the deaths caused by the Coronavirus, as well as healing from the political divisiveness that has consumed the country and culminated into a violent attack on the Capitol.

As Biden said in his speech, "So now, on this hallowed ground where just days ago violence sought to shake this Capitol's very foundation, we come together as one nation, under God, indivisible, to carry out the peaceful transfer of power as we have for more than two centuries."

We would like to offer our encouragement and support to Biden and Harris at the beginning of their journey to help the United States heal as a nation. It will not be easy. In fact, they will probably have the hardest job of any President and Vice President in modern history. But we believe the successful election and inauguration of Biden and Harris represents a step in the right direction for the country.

COVID-19 MEMORIAL - BIDEN AND HARRIS PAY THEIR RESPECTS TO THE 400,000 DEAD

The day before the inauguration ceremony, President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris delivered remarks at a remembrance ceremony for the more than 400,000 Americans who died from COVID-19. Performances included gospel artist Yolanda Adams and Lori Key, a registered nurse from the Detroit-metro area, whose video of her singing to health care staff went viral. Washington, D.C., Cardinal Wilton Gregory delivered the opening prayer.

"It's hard sometimes to remember, but that's how we heal. It's important to do that as a nation," Biden said in brief remarks before 400 lights were illuminated along the edges of the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, marking the more than 400,000 Americans who have died from Covid-19.
