A final speech. The Elected American President, Joe Biden, said goodbye to Delaware on Tuesday, January 19, during an emotionally charged ceremony, during which he returned to his journey, which took him to the White House. Joe Biden thanked his friends and family, who got together for the last time before he took office. “When I die, ‘Delaware’ will be etched into my heart” he said, on the verge of tears.
“I know those days are dark, but there is always light. That is what this state has taught me”, he added.
Joe Biden was a Delaware senator for more than thirty years and ran for president twice before being elected president on his third attempt. “Don’t tell me that things cannot change. They can and do” said Joe Biden. “I am extremely proud to become your president and your commander in chief”.

After the ceremony, Joe Biden flew to Washington, where he made an appearance at the Lincoln Memorial to attend a celebration for the 400,000 victims of Covid-19. “In order to heal, we have to remember. Sometimes it is difficult to remember, but this is how we heal”, he declared. “This is why we are here today”, he added in front of 400 lights that shine in honor of the victims, around the great basin of the vast esplanade of the “National Mall”.
Joe Biden will spend the night at Blair House, the official residence of the president’s guests, before taking the oath at noon on Wednesday and moving into the White House.
