This is still America.
This is still the America that elected and re-elected her first black president. That gave the majority of its votes to the candidate who would have been her first woman president. The America that has always stood for freedom, equality, justice, and opportunity. The America of hope and inclusiveness, not hatred and fear.
This is still the America that put a man on the moon and brought him safely back to earth. The America that stands firmly by its allies and tenders the hand of reconciliation and friendship to its defeated enemies.
This is still the America whose moral arc may be long, but bends towards justice — because in critical times she has always found citizens ready to take that arc into their own hands and bend it themselves if necessary.
Any would-be leaders who try to steer us backwards, in a direction that leads away from freedom, equality, and justice into tyranny and chaos, will soon find themselves trampled underfoot.
We are the majority. We are the future. We will prevail.
