Biden asks nation for bell ringings, light shows to remember those lost to COVID


#To set the tone for his inauguration the next day, #President-elect #Biden will lead a memorial to remember and honor lives lost to COVID-19, with church-bell ringings and light shows across the country on #Tue., #Jan. 19, at 5:30 p.m. ET.

#Driving the news: The #Presidential #Inauguration #Committee is announcing #Thursday morning that a D.C. ceremony, led by #Biden, will feature lights around the #Lincoln #Memorial #Reflecting #Pool — the first time lighting around the #Reflecting #Pool has memorialized #American lives lost.

  • “PIC is inviting cities and towns around the country to join #Washington, D.C., in illuminating buildings and ringing church bells at 5:30 p.m. ET [15 minutes after sunset] in a national moment of unity and remembrance,” the committee says.

PIC communications director #Pili #Tobar said in a statement: “The inauguration of #President-elect #Joe #Biden and #Vice #President-elect #Kamala #Harris represents the beginning of a new national journey.”

  • “#However, in the midst of a pandemic — when so many #Americans are grieving the loss of family, friends, and neighbors — it is important that we honor those who have died, reflect on what has been one of the more challenging periods in the nation’s history, and renew our commitment to coming together to end the pandemic and rebuild our nation.”
