President-elect Joe BidenJoe BidenHarris says he has not yet spoken to Pence Kamala Harris, Stacey Abrams, one of Time magazine’s Obama 2020 personalities: Republican party members believe “white men are victims.” and his wife, Jill Biden, wrote an option published Thursday that wished everyone a happy Thanksgiving, even if people are separated from their families in the midst of a pandemic.
The first couple to arrive also thanked the cutting-edge healthcare workers, educators and researchers.
“This year, our turkey will be smaller and the snap of cooking will be a little quieter. There will be no family walks in the cold or playful quarrels between the grandchildren. Like millions of Americans, we are temporarily letting go of traditions we can’t do safely, ”they wrote on a show on CNN.
“It’s no small sacrifice. These moments spent with our loved ones – lost time – cannot be returned. Yet, we know the price of this is to protect each other and we don’t pay alone. Separated in our own dining rooms and kitchens, scattered from shore to shore, we heal together. “Biden continued.
Nationwide, health experts and lawmakers continue to encourage Americans to practice social distancing during the holiday season as the nation sees cases of the coronavirus rushed.
In recent days, the president-elect has urged the public not to gather in groups of more than 10 people “in one room of the home” to alleviate the spread of the disease. In his remarks on Wednesday, he called on the country to unite in the fight against the epidemic.
“I know the country is tired of fighting, but we must remember that we are fighting a virus, not with each other. Not with each other,” the then-elected president said in his thanksgiving speech. .
On Thursday, Bidens also told Americans that despite people celebrating the holiday this year without being traditional, “their family sticks to our most important tradition: take a moment to count the many reasons we are grateful for. . “
They then thanked frontline workers, health workers, researchers, educators and parents for their efforts amid the months-long epidemic.
“We are grateful for the American spirit of our people, who are not scratched by crisis and hardship, but come together to uplift each other. … We are most grateful for the faith and trust we have received to continue to serve this beautiful, courageous, complex nation as its future president and first lady, ”they said.
“This year of loss has revealed our collective strength. It showed us that our lives are invisibly connected to each other — that we can be separate without being alone, ”they continued.
“Let the voids at our table and in our hearts be filled with memories of love and laughter. Let us nurture our traditions, even if they are unattainable, and cling to the still waiting for our own hope. We will go through this together, even if we have to be separate, ”they added in their closing message. “Happy Thanksgiving, from the Biden family to yours.”
