The first Black president of America, Barack Obama, had recently shared a fist bump with the first Black vice president, Kamala Harris and this picture that was snapped before her inauguration did go viral. The image is filled with so much joy, and it reveals the achievements that both of them have made in their own lives. Indeed, it is an achievement for the two and both the people can count them to be successful in their own lives. It was a small and sweet moment between the two incredible makers of history.
Certainly, this image had received a major attention on the Inauguration day. The nation’s first female, Black, and South Asian president, Kamala Harris stopped before the inauguration ceremony to bump firsts with Barack Obama, the former president. The first Black presideny of United States gleefully received the gesture with a smile on his face. They both were wearing protective face masks and thus, we can witness the joy that they shared in their eyes, though it was not apparently visible on their lips.
Indeed, there’s nothing new and it was all expected that a lot of fist bumping was going on at the event. Harris was wearing purple in order to honor Shirley Chisholm who had also shared a bump with the former First Lady Michelle Obama. Jill Biden also stopped to fist bump Obama and then it was a major day for their friendship. Of course, Biden had served as the vice president for it years and now, it seems to be his turn to lead the nation.
Harris and Biden had shared their oaths of office post everyone has said their own gteeginhs. They officially ushered in a new era in the United States’ history. Biden had stressed in his speech about unity between the Democrats and the Republicans as the only way to heal the nation. He said, “Unity is the path forward. This is the United States of America.” He added, “We’ve learned again that democracy is precious. Democracy is fragile. And at this hour, my friends: democracy has prevailed!”
He even gave a shoutout to his new vice president, “Today, we mark the swearing in of the first woman in American history elected to national office, Vice President Kamala Harris. Don’t tell me things can’t change.”
