Access to good education regardless of their zip code. To deal with the moral depravity.

Rejoined the Paris climate accord on day one make it clear. To our allies that will honor our commitments dot. They will stand. And restoring. World order. That’s him. To me. I came HERE from the National Constitution Center. Not far from where two of the most important documents in all of history written. The declaration of independence. We hold these truths to be self evident. Those words became the American creed known around. US constitution. We the people and these words literally changed in the world. We’ve never fully lived up to the promise of even those documents what we’ve. Never ever before walked away from them. They’re reminder. What to stake in this election. Are very democracy.

Are standing in the world are very democracy. Everything that is made america america. It’s truly had state. I believe this nation can overcome four years of donald trump and given eight. Four more years. Of forever and fundamentally change. The very character this nation. We can’t let that happen. But winning means. The winning means uniting america. Not selling more division anger. Means having the president not only not knows how to fight but knows how to heal. The needs and he. Facing a president.

Resilient people. We are better than this moment for him. We jest we have to do we just need. We just need to remember who we are. This is the United States of america. There’s not a single thing we cannot do we do it together. Close to the eve of Saint Patrick’s Day. I’m thought of a quote. Some of you heard me quote many times. A fellow that I admired very much impressed the way not long ago Cohen and Shamus Haney. He wrote a poem called secured short. There’s really set. In one sense he says history teaches us. Not to hold. On this side of the grave. But then. Once in a lifetime that longed for tidal wave of justice rises up. The whole industry rocks. I truly believe he threw more power. For the first time a long time because of what’s happened in the past three years. The power to make hope and history. That’s room to do. Com wish you all.
