Inauguration 2021

I’ve never watched a United States Presidential Inauguration before. Even this year I did not see all of it, but it seemed different, and important to participate. Not just the relief and celebration at a return to what seems like will be more rational and principled leadership, but the historic swearing in of a woman Vice President.


It’s only taken 232 years, but who’s counting? It’s sad, but part of me is still a little surprised that it even happened in my lifetime. But, from today, we are in a world where there’s been a woman Vice President. For everyone born from today on, it will not be a new thing when it happens again.

We still have a long way to go, but I feel like that promise of the USA being a place where you can grow up to be whatever you want to has become a tiny bit more true. That the girls and young women of today and the future will not have to work quite so hard to envision themselves in positions of leadership.

Thank you, Vice President Harris.
