America is Up to the Task

Americans are tired. Tired of the tweets, tired of the scandals, tired of watching our Constitution be ignored and the rule of law dragged through the mud. Most of all, they are tired of talking about any of it.

 

It seems, especially in a never-ending, 24-hour news cycle that America is spiraling downward, digging a hole out of which it would be seemingly impossible to ever climb. There is no denying that we face serious challenges, but through adversity comes strength; no one knows that better than those who came before us.

 

Throughout our history America has confronted challenges to our liberty and democracy: slavery, disenfranchisement, wars against murderous tyrants…the list goes on. Every time we have faced these challenges head-on, we have emerged stronger for the fight.

 

We can do so again now, if we recommit ourselves to the American cause. We cannot become complacent, we cannot become fatigued. There are still those who want to divide and weaken us, both here at home and in hostile foreign governments. We are stronger than those forces, so long as we do not allow them to divide us, but rather, confront them together, more unified than ever before.

 

The United States of America has always faced the longest odds and we have always been up to the task. It’s time for us to stand up again, putting partisan differences aside in order to leave our democracy stronger than we found it.

 

We will only succeed if we stand up together.

We should all celebrate Juneteenth

This is not a holiday for only some Americans, it is an American holiday. It is not just the day that the last American slaves finally got their inherent right to freedom, it is the day that America finally liberated itself of an inhuman and intolerable institution, that by its very existence rebutted our claims to be a free nation of, by and for the people.
