It's A Given

To the young people who led us this summer, telling us we need to be better -- in so many ways, you are this country's dreams fulfilled.  Earlier generations had to be persuaded that everyone has equal worth.  For you, it's a given -- a conviction.  And what I want you to know is that for all its messiness and frustrations, your system of self-government can be harnessed to help you realize those convictions.

-- Former President Barack Obama, in his speech to the Democratic National Convention, 19 August 2020
