Our forbearers in our democracy and republic came together in the midst of a lot of differences. Gradually, they came up with a way they felt and believed would be more representative of everyone than a monarchical form of government. They were way ahead of the times, and it worked. Everyone counts.
They wanted us each to do our part and vote for what we each think is best, but they also set up a system of governing for the people as well as by the people. Even though we finished voting, we each still count and so do our individual opinions. Those we elect represent us, but they need us to help them do so.
Let’s keep on reaching out to learn and to share with one another to become even better.
