The announcement of Democrat’s Presidential hopeful Joe Biden of his running mate made so many smile with excitement Tuesday. Kamala Harris, the first Woman of Color for Vice President brought joy to many, something America has been missing since COVID-19 and Racism events took over most of 2020. Her name brought hope. Her name is possibly destined to unite a divided America. Her name is an answered prayer for many of us wanting, pleading, dying for change.
So, if anyone had enough of the suffering, fear, anger, Racism, injustice, pain, loss, sickness and death, please register and vote this coming November. Be counted. Be heard. Be a part of history that will make America not just great again but a country that truly embrace democracy, humanity, kindness, generosity and mercy. We need to bring back everything that brings us pride, honor, justice and dignity. We need to heal and restore America. We need to resurrect and revive the dreams, freedom, opportunity and pursuit for happiness for all. We need to show our children we can be better. We need to show our children they can have a future to look forward to.
Many negative, even demeaning opinions, stories and news will be made to change people’s votes this coming election. When tempted, confused or in doubt, we go back and remember how it made us feel when we heard the announcement, “Kamala Harris, the first Black Woman and Asian American Woman for Vice President.” We go back to the pain of the past and history so it doesn’t happen and repeat again.
“The choice we make this November is going to decide the future of America for a very, very long time,” Biden said Wednesday. He is correct. Whether we head for disaster or be saved, it’s because of a choice we will be making and not anyone else.
Don’t let the lies, games and deception of Politics stop the Humanity screaming in our hearts. Don’t let the opinion of others drown our first instinct, and what our gut is telling.
I know I want change so my choice is clear and it has nothing to do if I’m a Republican or Democrat. I’m choosing the good of both and choosing who represents the most of that goodness. I’m choosing hope. I’m choosing humanity. I’m choosing the kind of America I want live in for a very, very long time.
My family's unwavering belief in me makes me feel that I can do anything, be anything. This blog is about the people that made a difference in my life and the many journeys we made together. Because of them,I get to dream again...and those dreams, they remind me each day that life is a gift and a blessing. A blessing that is full of goodness, joy and hope.
