We the People did it.
We the People pulled America away from the edge of the precipice it was teetering on.
We the People saved the American Dream for another generation
We saved democracy by acting like Americans.
As other generations fought bloody wars to preserve democracy, so we, embattled yet emboldened, saved our nation from losing our most precious gift. Our freedoms. In record numbers, We the People, Black Americans and Brown Americans, white, young, old, gay, straight, infirm and strong, grabbed our democracy out of the stronghold clutches of Donald Trump who was strangling it nearly choking the life out of it.
Four years of rallies and marches inspired and summoned us translated to record voting at the polls. With voter suppression tactics on the rise, an army of activists mobilized, the charge led by Black women to preserve the integrity of the electoral process. Voting, our most hallowed right as Americans was their call to action. And every action counted.
When the counting was done, we the people truly realized we counted.
We the People in order to form a more perfect union made good on those sacred words.
