It’s time for another Who Won the Week prompt. The idea behind Who Won the Week is for you to select who (or what) you think “won” this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything — politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies, TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.
I will be posting this prompt on Sunday mornings (my time). If you want to participate, write your own post designating who you think won the week and why you think they deserve your nod. Then link back to this post and tag you post with FWWTW.
The clear winner this week, with the election of Joe Biden as president and the defeat of Donald Trump, the man who was determined to turn America into an autocratic dictatorship, is democracy. That said, I’m going to designate this week’s Who Won the Week winner to be Kamala Harris.The election of the United States senator from California Kamala Harris as vice president is a long-overdue achievement for women and people of color that could forever change the face of politics.
Harris is the first woman ever to be elected to a national office, in this case, vice president, in the United States. She will also be the first black person and first Asian American to be vice president.
So I’m thrilled that Joe Biden is the president-elect and that we’ve taken a giant step toward restoring democracy in America. But I’m even more delighted that Kamala Harris is our new vice president-elect and may, ultimately, four or eight years down the road, become America’s first female president.
What about you? Who (or what) do you think won the week?
