2021 in review

The past two years have merged together in a haze of never ending disaster. From the pandemic, to political scandals to violence and death. As 2020 drew to a close, many believed 2021 would be a time of hope – but the year has had its awful moments. 

Like 2020, 2021 was heavily defined by the COVID-19 pandemic, due to the emergence of multiple COVID-19 variants. The major global rollout of COVID-19 vaccines, which began at the end of 2020, continued in 2021. 

There was some joy however, major (2020) events were hosted over the summer of 2021 – such as the Euros – and the Olympics finally happened! 

January 2021

Attack on US capitol

The new year got off to a dismal start for the United States as on January 6th a mob of Donald Trump supporters attacked the US Capitol building in Washington. 

The mob, encouraged by Donald Trump amongst others, marched to the Capitol after attending a rally for the then president. Their aim was to overturn Donald Trump’s re-election defeat in the 2020 presidential election by disrupting the joint session of Congress assembled to count electoral votes that would formalise President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.

Joe Biden inauguration

On January 20th Joe Biden became the 46th president of the United States, marking a four year term as president and Kamala Harris as vice president. 

Joe Biden’s inauguration has been widely acknowledged as taking place amid extraordinary political, public health, economic, and nation security crises. Biden, America’s oldest president, took office during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the US Capitol attack, Trump’s second impeachment, the threat of widespread civil unrest which stimulated a nationwide law enforcement response.
