I watched a lot of the inauguration day on various TV news channels in the UK.
It made me feel very happy. The biggest moment for me was the presidential visit to Arlington with three former presidents standing in the background. It was very dignified and respectful. My heart was filled with pride and respect for my US, British and international comrades in arms, living and dead. I was very impressed by President Biden’s humility and his obvious connection with the citizens of America and their daily problems.
Finally, what a huge breath of fresh air is brought to the USA and to the world by your new Vice President. She is wonderful and has one of the warmest, most genuine smiles I have ever seen.
I am not stupid. There will be things that this pair do that I might disagree with, but the anger and frustration that I felt from across the Atlantic with the previous administration is gone.
The darkness is lifted. I am awaking from a gruesome nightmare into a new dawn.
Tomorrow is already a better day!
