On The Ballot

All elections are important.  But we know in our bones this one is more consequential.  America is at an inflection point.  A time of real peril, but of extraordinary possibilities.

We can choose the path of becoming angrier, less hopeful and more divided.  A path of shadow and suspicion.  Or we can choose a different path, and together, take this chance to heal, to be reborn, to unite.  A path of hope and light.

This is a life-changing election that will determine America's future for a very long time.  Character is on the ballot.  Compassion is on the ballot.  Decency, science, democracy.  They are all on the ballot.  Who we are as a nation.  What we stand for.  And, most importantly, who we want to be.  That's all on the ballot.

-- Democratic presidential candidate Joseph R. Biden, in his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention, 20 August 2020
