Celebrate Our Commonality

In this crazy melting pot of ours where there are many races, religions, political bents, cultures, languages, beliefs, and value systems it can feel as if we have nothing in common, no unity, no bonds to hold us together as a larger community. We do have a thing known as American culture, the foundation of which is democracy.

We do not live in a totalitarian society; we do not live under a violent dictatorship. We are a democracy and we can celebrate the unity and commonality that freedom brings us. Today we can celebrate that which brings us all together by casting our ballot.

Celebrate our culture, participate in democracy and vote.
