Busy Week of National Events

We begin a busy week of National Events. On Monday, we remember Martin Luther King Junior. On Tuesday, we remember the lives lost to COVID-19, and on Wednesday we look ahead on Inauguration Day.

On Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day takes on a deeper meaning set against the backdrop of outcries for Social Justice and political unrest. The gatherings may be virtual, but the message is as important as ever. On Tuesday, the Committee planning the Inauguration is hosting a National Moment of Unity to remember people we’ve lost to COVID-19, more than 396,000 so far. At 5:30 in DC as the sun sets, the Lincoln Memorial reflecting pool will be awash with light and cities nationwide will join by illuminating their buildings and ringing Church bells.

Wednesday is Inauguration Day when President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will be sworn in. Between the Pandemic and the riot at the Capitol, the celebration will be scaled down but security will be beefed up. The Feds are warning of more potential attacks from extremists. As Biden promises to move the Country forward with a message of unity.
