MISSION COMPLETE! “Periodt!”

Published

If you thought the 2008 election of President Barack Obama, the country’s first-ever Black president was historic and unimaginable, many will vow that there’s no feeling to describe the magnitude of the recently announced presidential victory. After days of waiting for what felt like an eternity, the American people have spoken, and the long-awaited United States presidential election results are in; we have a new chief headed to the White House along with his history making vice-president. President-Elect Joe Biden WILL BE the 46th president of the United States and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris, WILL BE the first woman ever, and first Black and Asian American to hold the second highest office in the land.

After these last four years of what many felt was suppression and division of a country under the presidency of #45, this election was historic on so many levels. This election sought the most votes ever cast in United States history; at 78, Joe Biden will be the oldest person to assume the presidency. In some states Biden surpassed the number of votes received by Hillary Clinton in 2016 and Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012 when they ran; and Kamala Harris is the first woman ever to fill the office of vice-president.

Images of flooded streets with droves of people dancing and celebrating immediately after the Biden win was announced gives some citizens a feeling that hope has been renewed; however, we can’t be naïve to the reality that this country is still extremely divided and hate and racism are more evident now than in the past. We are also aware that the current president and an abundance of his supporters are unwilling to accept his loss and have plans to further push false narratives about this election being stolen.

A lot needs to happen in order to repair the state of this great country, and based on the promises of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris they are ready to get down to the business of restoring our faith in democracy, fighting the Coronavirus, and healing and uniting America. May God Bless America.
