All Americans have a difficult task before them.
To choose or not to choose, or stay silent.
I am reminded of the words that: ” to do nothing
ensures that evil will go on.”1
It takes a lot of courage to make a choice.
Years from now, we may look back
At this election and realize, that “Now,”
Was the critical moment in time for
Us to decide the fate of Our Nation,
And a cherished way of life.
We decide to be a Nation with
Equality and Justice for All;
Discrimination towards None;
Having respect towards women;
Honoring the Democratic Process
That we hold dear as Americans;
Fostering an attitude of unification;
Working together to solve problems,
And seeing the best in one another;
Or, we choose divisiveness for Our Nation;
Hatred and a refusal to accept responsibility
For our own actions;
Having an attitude of disrespect for women;
And mocking and disrespecting the Democratic
Process, and those who are different from us.
Make no mistake. We choose,
Or we remain silent, which also is a choice.
We choose to improve our Country or
Let others destroy it.
The fate of This Nation lies in Our hands.
