It was we, the people; not we, the white male citizens; nor yet we, the male citizens; but we, the whole people, who formed the Union. –Susan B. Anthony
It’s especially emotional voting today, and today, the whole people vote–Latinos, Native Americans, Asian Americans, African Americans, disabled Americans, women, men….I pray the better angels of our natures prevail today, keeping this nation unified by not voting for hate and for divisiveness. We only move forward together. We are stronger together.
Abraham Lincoln expressed it best: We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.
