The Start of New Beginnings in The White House

Reese Carey

On January 20, 2021, the presidential inauguration for the 46th president has been a day filled with enthusiasm and promise of what is to come. 
The morning started with Donald Trump leaving office for the last time as president, and being the only president in over one hundred years not to skip his successor’s inauguration, according to CBS News
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were sworn into office and gave speeches promoting unity and the nation coming together. 
It was very ironic to see no crowds at this year’s inauguration, when just four years ago, at Trump’s inauguration, it was a subject of contention about how sparse the crowds were. The pandemic has created a new normal. Safe and social distancing has ruled supreme. 
The takeover at the Capitol on January 6 and the threat of what could happen today January 20th, was not taken lightly. Under the Trump regime, the last four years have been riddled with division and division for our country. Biden and Harris promise to change and stability for our nation.
Extreme and necessary security measures were put in effect. There were security checkpoints everywhere around The District of Columbia.
