It’s a great day in America as Joe Biden take oath to office as the 46th US president. The 78-year-old gave a speech, giving Americans hope and assurance. See below;
“On this hallowed ground, where just a few days ago violence sought to shake the 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,” he said.
“Today, on this January day, my whole soul is in this: bringing America together, uniting our people, uniting our nation, and I ask every American to join me in this cause,” Biden said.
“I know speaking of unity can sound to some like a foolish fantasy these days. I know the forces that divide us are deep and they are real. But I also know they are not new. Our history has been a constant struggle between the American ideal that we all are created equal and the harsh, ugly reality that racism, nativism, fear, demonization have long torn us apart,” Biden said. “In each of these moments, enough of us, enough of us have come together to carry all of this forward, and we can do that now.”
“Without unity, there is no peace, only bitterness and fury,”“Politics doesn’t have to be a raging fire, destroying everything in its path. Every disagreement doesn’t have to be a cause for total war.”
“We are entering what may be the toughest and deadliest period of the virus. We must set aside politics and finally face this pandemic as one nation,”
“Before God and all of you, I give you my word: I will always level with you,” he said. “I will defend the Constitution. I’ll defend our democracy. I’ll defend America.”
What a heartwarming speech. Biden also thanked his Predecessors; former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. Lady Gaga sang the National anthem and Donald Trump was reportedly absent.
Congratulations once again to Biden and Kamala Harris.
