Today is the inauguration of Joe Biden as our 46th President. I have never been happier to see a President voted out of the White House than I am to see 45 go. And yet, I am still trepidatious about what is to come. I think there is a feeling that this leadership change will fix all of the ills in this country and that is such a fallacy.
There is so much work to be done in America toward equality and equity. America’s health care system needs to be gutted and overhauled. White Supremacists and Fascists need to be routed out and shown that there is no place for them in our country.
I will go into this new administration with hope for tomorrow, but cautious optimism. I will absolutely celebrate our first female Vice President, Kamala Harris. I will try to be the face of change in my world. We have work to do, but hopefully this is a step in the right direction.
