Transcript of Amanda Gorman's inaugural poem "The Hill We Climb" (La colline surmontée)
To celebrate this Glorious Day, let the colors of the youngest person (22 year old) shine on! Gordon is the first young lady to deliver a magnificent poem at a U.S presidential inauguration for almost 6 minutes. Today is also an historical day and the first day in 150 years that a woman is becoming Vice President, Madam Kamala Harris. Today Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were sworn in as president and vice-president.
A lot is ahead to take care of, and let’s all unite in those words: "This is America's day. This is democracy's day. A day of history and hope, of renewal and resolve. Through a crucible for the ages, America has been tested anew. America has risen to the challenge." – Biden
