If I have to, I can do anything
I am strong
I am invincible
I am woman

Helen Reddy said it in 1972 and yesterday, Kamala Harris was sworn into office as our first African American, first Asian American, and first woman Vice President.

"When she takes the oath of office, little girls and boys across the world will know that anything and everything is possible and in the end...that is America." -Senator Amy Klobuchar
