Kamala Harris takes oath as vice president of the United States

Kamala Devi Harris was sworn in Wednesday as the nation’s first female, Black and South Asian American vice president.

She took her oath moments before Joe Biden was set to be sworn in as the nation’s 46th president.

Sonia Sotomayor, America’s first Latina Supreme Court justice, administered the vice presidential oath of office to Harris.

Harris and Biden on Inauguration Day inherit a country facing the Covid crisis, an economic downturn and demands for racial justice.

A daughter of Jamaican and Indian immigrants, Harris has made history throughout her career.

As a U.S. senator for California, Harris, 56, was the second Black woman and first South Asian American to serve in the upper chamber. Before her Senate tenure, Harris was the first female, Black and South Asian American attorney general of California. Harris also served as district attorney of San Francisco.

Harris ran for president in the 2020 Democratic primary before joining Biden’s ticket. Her record as a prosecutor at times sparked criticism from progressive advocates for criminal justice reform, though Harris has said she sought reform from within those roles. Harris clashed with Biden during first Democratic debate, criticizing his record on racial justice issues.

An alumna of Howard University and member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority, Harris is also the first vice president to have graduated from a historically Black college and to be in a historically Black Greek letter organization.

After her own inauguration, Harris is set to swear in three barrier-breaking senators in her new role as president of the upper chamber.

Alex Padilla, appointed by California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom as Harris’ successor, will be the first Latino senator from the state. Following a competitive January runoff elections, the Rev. Raphael Warnock will be the first Black senator from Georgia and Jon Ossoff will be the first Jewish senator from the Peach State.

The new Democratic senators will create a 50-50 split between the two party caucuses in the Senate, giving Democrats a slim majority with Harris as the tie-breaking vote.

On the campaign trail, Harris often recalled a message her mother, Shyamala Gopalan, told her, “You may be the first to do many things, but make sure you are not the last.”

Homage to MADAME
Companion of my life, you are in same time my mother, my sister and my grandmother,
Also being these heiresses: my daughters and my grand daughters ...
Sometimes you behave like the head of the company
So you turn protective like a big brother, grandpa or daddy

Even cuddly like our sons and their children
With you, I feel surrounded by all the members of our coven
You are both my aunt my uncle and all my kinsmen,
In you, I find mountains, hills,lakes and oceans ...

Representing a lush green meadow , a surface of peaceful water ,
Your presence gives us such restful breathers
Your approving looks come to warm my days in move
Your voice so sweet bring me oh how many signs of love!

Although escape imperceptibly from time to time a few shrill intonations
In you is consumed as at the bottom of a volcano a fire of ardent passion:
With incessant desires to transmute this world where there is so much injustice and miseries,
By dreaming of great prospects for progress in a nice world of harmony ...

Tireless caregiver of small and big ailments for humanity
You assume all the positions and all the trades of our society
Being a teacher, writer, scientist ,craftswoman, shopkeeper, peasant, athlete or a liberal profession
The woman gives everything of her person without counting in an optimal mention

For her, there is only a search for small pleasures, however
A tidy house, surrounded by a beautiful garden full of flowers
A husband, kids, and all healthy relatives, Let everyone behave with her in a decent, considerate manner and positive

Every day, she puts all her affection into the preparation of some delicious dishes . Happy to see her family come together on feast days to cherish...
A simple life, a holy, healthy, serene and peaceful life
With great hope that anything is all right

My Lady is a true Queen without a crown band
Carrying our home and the entire Globe in her good hands
This Majesty well deserves the Nobel Prize for Intrinsic Nobility
The permanent Golden Oscar for the female star of all our film libraries

Without her, without this source of life we ​​wouldn't exist
A deep gratitude to the Woman and to all our lovely spouses and feminists
Above all, these lines poetically testify all my sincere praises to Madame .
In my mother tongue, we say phonetically with a lot of consideration: thank you "Bà Đầm, all Bà Đầm”.

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. 19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. Gospel of John 3:16-20
