TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) – The president’s inauguration looked different this year. Due to the pandemic, there weren’t any large crowds and travelers going to Washington DC were restricted.
Michael Huggins usually coordinated a bus trip from Toledo to the capital of the country to experience the event in person. However, this year the trip was canceled due to COVID-19. Instead, Huggins and his wife watched the event on TV at home on their couch.
Stephanie Lincoln is a mother of three and works as a nurse. She was impressed when Vice President Kamala Harris was sworn into office. Harris made history and became the first woman to become Vice President of the United States. For Lincoln, the moment is a high point of years in the wings and she believes it will pave a new path for women.
“It means the world to me. I have great-great-great-grandparents who never saw that day but could imagine it, and I’m here to see it, “says Lincoln.
Huggins says he is hoping for President Biden’s tenure and is on board with a message of unity. He believes the president can unite the country and bring positive things to the American people.
Huggins hopes to be able to plan another trip to the US capital in four years.
