History is fixed and can not be undone. History is not circular. It is a continuum of the

distant past as well as the recent past. Whatever achievements, mistakes, or regrets that were made throughout our history, we must remember that most were done in good faith. Granted, history can't be erased, however, by admitting our failures and our misjudgments we can ease our burden of not understanding the moments of our time. And so along the way, history yet again, will provide us with another opportunity to right the wrongs of the past. Even as we cannot change the past we must use our history as a conduit for improvement. We can build on what has always been with us and for us, the good of the community. This effort for change can not be stopped and should not be stopped. For the majority of us, the needs of our people are greater than ourselves.

For the future of our country, what is needed at this moment in time is an understanding that the two parties should not pit one against the other; there have always been circular arguments over ideas and beliefs that each of us has in one way or another. Those ideas and beliefs are an understanding of what is known to each of us individually, furthermore, being of different mind does not make anyone better or worse than the other. We have a two party system, and while the contention between parties is not new, each side does have the guaranteed right to have their voices heard, just as it should be. Our forefathers made clear that the differences were to be worked out by civilized men with character and wisdom. That is what a democracy represents, freedom … just as the preamble to the Constitution states … for one and for all.

We as a collective people can use today's growing pains as an initiative for the betterment of our country, our society, and our Government. Those responsibilities have always been in our hands. Ultimately, we are the makers of change. This election is not just about me, nor is it just about you, this is for the future of our children and our grandchildren. There are a myriad of us who seek to seize the moment to improve what our forefathers intended; a society that is well organized with equality and for the well being for all its people. To Quote Joe … "We The People."
