History Made Today at the Presidential Inauguration
Just minutes ago, Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States in a ceremony that kept with tradition while being unlike any other inauguration in U.S. history due to heightened security and the Covid-19 pandemic. Kamala Harris was also sworn in as Vice President. This Bay Area native was the first woman to be inaugurated as Vice President of our country. Harris was born to an Indian mother and a Jamaican father, which also makes her the first person of color to serve in that position. As Joe Biden said in his speech today, "Today is a day of history and hope."

"While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last, because every little girl watching tonight sees that this is a country of possibilities." -Vice President Elect Kamala Harris
