With just hours until President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration, he has confirmed his plans for his first day in office.

And they're pretty big...

That's right, Biden might not be in office just yet...


But he has big plans for his first day...

As we all know, Biden has endured a long and tedious battle for his place in the White House...


In 1987, he first decided to run for president but, after suffering from severe headaches during the campaign, he dropped out the following year. Doctors later discovered that he had 2 life-threatening brain aneurysms.

And, 2 decades after his initial presidential bid...


Biden decided to run for president once again. However, despite his experience in the Senate, his campaign failed to gain momentum.

Last year marked his third run for president...

And saw him go head to head with the notorious President Donald Trump.

It was one hell of a run-up to the election.


Of course, the election couldn't have fallen on a worse year, but it powered ahead despite some major setbacks - including Trump's coronavirus diagnosis.

And the votes didn't lie!


After a tense few days of counting (and recounting) votes, it was confirmed that Joe Biden's third run for president had been successful - everyone, meet the forty-sixth president of the United States.

This was a historic win...

Not only because Biden broke Barack Obama's record for the most votes cast for a presidential candidate, but also because vice president-elect, Kamala Harris, will be the first-ever woman of color to be elected in office. Simply amazing.

Of course, President Donald Trump didn't take to this news well, at all...


And after continuously claiming the entire election was "a fix" and that he was the actual winner, Trump recently declared that he won't be attending Biden's inauguration - something that didn't come as a surprise to many.

Biden, on the other hand, accepted his win graciously...

And the president-elect, along with his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, has been celebrating along with the rest of the country.

Although, now he's taking action...

On Tuesday, just 1 day before his inauguration, Biden took to the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool to mourn the loss of those who died of COVID.

Gospel singer Yolanda Adams performed "Hallelujah," while four-hundred lanterns were lit to remember those lost to the pandemic.

In churches all across the country, bells rang in solidarity.

"To heal, we must remember. And it is hard sometimes to remember, but that's how we heal. It is important to do that as a nation. That is why we are here today," said Biden. "Between sundown and dusk, let us shine the lights in the darkness along this sacred pool of reflection and remember all who we have lost."

Tuesday's ceremony was the first time since the start of the pandemic that the government has reflected on the lives we've lost.

It signaled not only the arrival of a new administration but a chance for us all to begin healing.

"For many months, we have grieved by ourselves," said Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.

"Tonight, we grieve — and begin healing — together."

The memorial service was just one of many of Biden's plans for the beginning of his presidency.

As Biden has revealed how he plans to spend his first day as president and, it seems he will be doing a lot...

In his first day as president Biden intends to spend time undoing many of the hallmarks of President Donald Trump by taking on seventeen executive actions.

His plans for day one were published online and reveal that he will immediately reverse 3 of Trump's policies: His withdrawal from the World Health Organization, his "Muslim travel ban," and his exit from the Paris Climate Agreement.

He will also be launching a "100 Day Masking Challenge," starting with mandating wearing masks on federal property.

While also stopping border wall construction with "an immediate pause in wall construction projects to allow a close review of the legality of the funding and contracting methods used, and to determine the best way to redirect funds that were diverted by the prior Administration to fund wall construction."

And these are just to name a few. You can see the full list here.
