What Joy!

What a joyful weekend! An absolute historical day that continues to bring me to tears and gives a sense of hope and renewal. Here are some of my favorite videos, memes, quotes from over the weekend.

 

1. Kamala calling Joe Biden

 

Chills, tears, a MUST watch. I watched it dozens of times…

2. NYC celebrating

 

The images on social media of friends and influencers rejoicing and celebrating the victory of Biden, the end of Trump. Inspirational, heart warming, encouraging.

 

3. John McCain’s 2008 Concession speech

 

This 2008 speech was circulating all over social media over the weekend, and is such a stark contrast to the current President and the way he is handling the election.

 

4. Kamala’s inspiring speech

 

“While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last,” Ms. Harris said in her address to the nation.

 

5. Joe Biden’s uplifting speech

 

Finally, someone who unifies the country instead of divide!

 

6. NYC celebrates

 

I can’t get enough of all the images of people celebrating in the city. It was a glorious weather, and I am so sad to have missed out on all the festivities and celebrations.

 

7. Emoji Meme

 

Says it all.

 

8. Ruby to Kamala

 

A powerful image of the mishmashing of Ruby Bridges, the first Black student at the William Frantz Elementary School in New Orleans on November 14, 1960. And then Kamala Harris, the first woman of color, the first woman, as vice president of the USA.

 

9. Kamala in her white pantsuit

 

Kamala in suffragette white. An interesting read, and oh so powerful!
