JOURNEY TO THE WHITE HOUSE

JOURNEY TO THE WHITE HOUSE : Through A Global Pandemic by [Sally Foster ]

In this thought-provoking reflection on contemporary society, author Sally Foster takes a journalistic approach to record the turbulent historic times of 2020. The onset of the Covid 19 pandemic had an unimaginable impact on each and every part of the world. The global economy crashed overnight, and the underprepared healthcare sector found itself in an absolute state of misery. Despite the desperate attempts of doctors and healthcare workers, the death toll could not be stopped. At a certain point in 2020, the US faced the biggest blow, when the number of deaths hit the highest in the world. 

Foster captures events and her thoughts in this enlightening book that reads more like a diary, but still conveys a series of facts in a way that is easy to take in. This book shows how the different industries tackled the tense situations. As businesses hit the lowest points, unemployment became a major issue. On one hand, there was the threat of the virus, the lockdown, and on another hand, people did not have the means to take care of themselves or their loved ones. Racial injustices took a violent turn and culminated in a historic movement that the world will remember for years to come. Sally Foster is able to capture these momentous events in concise summaries that lead readers quickly through these events. 

This book captures the time that the Presidential election took place. The parties changed their campaign strategies due to the pandemic, and ultimately, the world witnessed the departure of Donald Trump and the triumph of the new President Joseph R. Biden. With the arrival of the vaccines, people saw the much-needed ray of hope. I appreciated the candid nature with which Sally Foster captured these moments. It reminded me of reading an almanac of times past, if one were created for social events. 

Foster’s diary states factual data, takes the reader through the unprecedented and tumultuous events that 2020 witnessed. From global politics, trade, healthcare to the ongoing election– the author took into account every detail, delineating how traumatic the year has been. The book ends on an inspirational note with the inaugural speech of the newly elected President which allows the reader to look forward to a future full of hopes and possibilities. If you missed the events of the past several years, did not catch them all (there was a lot), or want to look back on those times, then Journey to the White House is a factual yellow brick road that will lead you from there to here.
