The moment has finally arrived.
Kamala Harris has officially been sworn in as Vice President of the United States.
This moment has made history.
Not only is Kamala Harris the first woman to ever be elected in such a position, but she is also the first (and hopefully not the last) woman of color to do so.
So it's no surprise that many have shed tears on this momentous day...
For a lot of us, this moment couldn't have come quickly enough.

Now, it's been a long journey but we've finally reached the next chapter.
Biden has endured a long and tedious battle for his place in the White House, because 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...
Last year marked his third run for president...
And saw him go head to head with the notorious Donald Trump.
It was one hell of a run-up to the election, and 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!
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 will be the first-ever woman of color to be elected in office.
Of course, 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 declared that he won't be attending Biden's inauguration - something that didn't come as a surprise to many.
Trump is also facing impeachment following his behavior over the riots held at the U.S Capitol building...
It's certainly been a big couple of weeks in US politics.
Nevertheless, Biden accepted his win graciously...
And Biden along with his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, have been celebrating along with the rest of the country.
Democrats all across the country are eager for the special moment...
Because it's bound to be a historical moment.
Joe Biden is joined by first lady Jill Biden, Kamala Harris, and her husband, Doug Emhoff...
As well as Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton.
Former first ladies Michelle Obama, Laura Bush, and Hillary Clinton are also in attendance.
Thousands have come out in support of the pair, but this really is a moment for Kamala Harris...
Don’t forget to wear your #chucksandpearls today to celebrate 1st Woman, African American, Asian American, #HBCU g… https://t.co/PSNDGfqdzp— Jan-Michele Lemon Kearney (@Jan-Michele Lemon Kearney)1611147107.0
And millions of women, particularly women of color all around the world.
We're excited to see how Harris shakes things up for the better.
