Watching the inauguration yesterday I realized nothing but positivity coming from everyone who spoke. Everyone gave each other and also gave me hope that someday we won't be in a global pandemic, that one day we won't have discrimination nor racism. Having a president and vice president whose goals are to make our nation united is refreshing for me to hear and It was also refreshing to others who want peace and unity.

I noticed Barack Obama and Michelle Obama were there, in the article in Newsela of the inauguration for President Joe Biden it states, "Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama" went to the inauguration. Former first ladies were there, too. They were Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush and Michelle Obama. . I wondered why they let people into the white house after President Biden got there with his wife and family. What stood out to me was the President Biden wife's coat and Michelle Obama coat, they were so beautiful and they looked beautiful. I want President Biden to help out our country and fix what Trump messed up and caused.

I notice that Joe had a hard childhood. Joe had a hard time because he stuttered a lot when he was younger. My evidence on this comes the article " Ten things you may not know about Joe Biden," it states, "He wrote in his memoir that a teacher, who was also a nun, even made fun of him. She called him "Mr. Bu-bu-bu-Biden," leading him to walk out of class one day." This show how much he has progressed through to the years not giving up on the goals he has for our country.

I notice that joe is the oldest president. I wonder whats going to be his first big improvement meanwhile I wonder whats going to be his first mess up as presidents as well. What stands out to me is when joe said we are going to address global warming and try to do to lower it.I mean I want no war in the middle east or any thing with the middle east.Well I expect we are still going to be in other countries.

In my opinion, I think Gorman stands out quite a lot. She provides the President and past Presidents of the country with an amazing speech seeking health and reform for the future of our country. Gorman feels encouraged to emphasize unity and hope during her speech. Gorman also makes history as the youngest poet to attend and perform at an Inaugural event for President-elect Biden. SHE IS AMAZING!!

Gorman feels encouraged to emphasize unity and hope during her speech. Gorman also makes history as the youngest poet to attend and perform at an Inaugural event for President-elect Biden. Gorman is a successful well-known poet, in which she graduated and performed live poetry at Harvard University in the past year. She dreams of sharing her poets at plenty of other important occasions such as the Inauguration of President-elect Biden. In her speech she states "every corner called our country,

i noticed after reading 10 things you may not know about Joe Biden that even after him have a rough childhood with his stuttering and even after he lost his first wife and their 13-month-old daughter in a car accident and failing to become president 3 times he still was able to keep trying and became present. I do believe that some good can come out of Joe Biden being president now and how there is lots of good people like Barack Obama and his wife who support him and i just hope he keeps his word and does good for the people

I noticed a lot of people and celebrities were very happy that he is the president. I wonder what he is going to take care of first in and what are his priorities. One thing I to happen is to take the pandemic problem seriously now that someone else is in charge. I hope he can find a way to turn this country around and unite us even though it will be hard because some people don't agree with his political views.

What I noticed from the inauguration is that a lot of people seemed to be happy when he became president. From the article "Ten things you didn't know about Joe Biden" I learned that he overcame stuttering when he was young. Also something I didn't know is that he ran for president 3 times.

in all honesty i did not watch the inuraugaration but i did catch some of the main points of the event. I Know many celebraties such as Katty Perry JLo and Lady gaga were there to perform. I also noticed the fact Obama and Mitchelle were there showing their appreciation and happiness towards them winning. Both kamela and him made history and no one can change that.

After watching the inauguration I felt a sense of relief. Although the nation had to choose the lesser of two evils, I expect more positive changes will be made by our new president.

What I notice is that he is the oldest president to take office being in his 70's i also took in that he never gave up. In the article " Ten things you may not know about Joe Biden" it states "Biden first ran for president in 1987. Next, he ran in 2008. He dropped out of that race and later joined the Obama ticket. On his third run, Biden won in November 2020. Kamala Harris will be his vice president". making that three times he has tried before winning his third. I wonder what big impact he'll create first

I noticed that every president that is still alive was there except for carter because of health reasons and Trump probably because he was but hurt that he didn't win. Anyways what i expect to happen is that bidden is going to undo the wrongs that trump had made and be a better president. i feel like he would be the better president because he ran 3 times before to be president so he settled down to be vice president and took the presidency this year from trump. In all honesty Biden is the better president with more experience and has seen more of the president does more than anyone.

I noticed that there was a lot of celebration and excitement among the people... and then was Trump says "See ya", and the hole ceremony was about "fixing up stuff" it was obvious the hate to Trump. Anyways, I expect nothing because this is the US. Unless the president make the citizen chill out for once this country will be a good place to be, otherwise we'll a protest every 2 weeks or so in the news, independent if us Trump supporters doing illegal stuff, BLM breaking building for some reason instead of pacifically protesting, etc.

I forgot the evidence. In the article "Biden takes the helm as president: "Democracy has prevailed"" the evidence about trump just leaving is: "Trump is the first president in more than a century to skip the inauguration of his successor."
1/22/2021 10:41:47 am
I noticed that everyone was wearing masks and following covid safety regulations. I wonder if Biden will be able to keep all the promises he made during his campaign. What stood out to me is that he showed what side he stood on when it came to BLM by having that girl say her poem. I want him to be able to fix the pandemic and I hope that he can fix the economy.

One Thing i notice is that Joe Biden never gave up on becoming president and he is good friends with many good leaders.He also is looking forward to helping the country and making positive changes.
1/22/2021 11:29:15 am
I notice that in order to change the future we have to come together as a nation. I wonder how will biden help the society come together as an whole. The poem at inauguration was the thing that stand out to me because I did not expect a black independent woman read a poem at this event. I want the United States to become together as a nation so that we won't have to fight against each other.

I notice that we must be better and stop racism from becoming a bigger threat to society. What stand out to me was a a woman of color gave a speech about how color people gone through a what the people need to change. I expect change

During the inauguration I noticed how happy both Biden and Kamala were when they were sworn in. I wonder what President Biden is going to do to unite the people and win over the Trump supporters. What stood out to me the most was the amazing poem by Amanda Gorman. It was very moving. One thing I hope happens next is actions being taken to stop this pandemic from getting worse.

I noticed a change that for the first time in years United States united together as a whole

I noticed that the new and actual president together with the vice-president Harris had many support of Latin and Black people, including artist as Jennifer Lopez. As evidence of this in the inauguration a black lady recite a poem, which say "We are striving to forge a union with purpose, To compose a country committed to all cultures, colors, characters and conditions of man ". these lines from the poem demonstrate two things. The first one is that the change is happening because black people didn't feel discriminate and they also can dream and achieve their dreams. And the second is the hope, the hope that everybody feel to have a union country. I wonder if the president Biden will keep all his promises to make of this country a better country. One thing that stand out to me is his proposal to help immigrants students to they can continue studying. And I also want that this promise be fulfilled because of this way many immigrant students have the opportunity to achieve their dreams.

From the inauguration I noticed many things like Biden saying many powerful things he said. He wanted to unite people for us to work together and the powerful speech the young woman gave that ut was a time for change. This was a time to get together and defeat all the negativity. Their has been many negative things that has happened in the last 4 years but now is the time for change and I am happy for them.

what I noticed after reading 10 thing you may not know about Kamala Harries is she has wrote 3 books. Also our new vice president protested when she was little with her sister in front of their apartment where they lived because children weren’t allowed to play in the lawn". A quote that inspired me, was her victory speech in 2020 "Because every little girl watching tonight sees that this is a country of possibilities." To mean it meant we can make a difference in the world. I want both of our presidents to unite what is broken.
