Women at the temple say they recognize who she is and all of the people she may represent while being vice president.
During Sunday prayer, members prayed for peace and health for the new presidential elects and to create unity under President-elect Joe Biden and Harris
Siya Yinti, 15, and Keerthi Vijay, 16, tell News 12 they feel excited to see a woman who matches their identity pave the way for girls like them.
Many women at the temple say they were touched when Harris said she may be the first women in office, but won't be the last.
