On November 7, that remarkable Saturday, “America has chosen Democrat Joe Biden as its 46th president.” As soon as the news networks announced the news, people took to the streets in celebration. Everyone was clapping, singing and dancing. I was proud of our community and I wanted to remember that scene. A local resident Malaika Danovitz captured an incredible photo for this moment: a father and son made a special moment, they were holding the American flag while driving by the Maplewood theater, a local landmark opened since 1927 that closed permanently during the pandemic.
