After the inauguration day, the July 4 ceremony at the White House was the largest ever hosted by Joe Biden as President of the United States. “America is united again,” he said at a White House reception. “Today, as never before, we are close to declaring independence from the deadly virus,” the president told White House guests and the American people in general. The White House was open to hundreds of invited guests on Sunday. Guests were treated to hamburgers and a variety of traditional foods. Among the invited guests were representatives of the profession who are on the front line in the fight against coronavirus. In his speech, President Biden stressed the importance of vaccination and said that the most patriotic behavior now is to get vaccinated against the coronavirus. For Biden, the July 4 holiday was a good chance to highlight how hard his administration has worked to combat the pandemic. America has come a long way since declaring a state of emergency across the country until today, when the crisis has been reduced to a local level and the responsibility of individuals is of particular importance. The United States has also begun to enter the international arena after the vaccination phase of its own citizens and is helping different countries with vaccines. “This year, July 4, is a day of special celebration. We are emerging from a year of darkness of pandemic and isolation, a year of pain, fear and heartache,” President Biden said at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., before launching traditional fireworks. America celebrated its 245th birthday this year. Unlike last year, when restrictions were imposed due to the coronavirus, this year’s event is still held traditionally. Independence Day in photos:.
