We are not as divided as some people would have us think. Most of us are not red or blue but purple. We share a set of standards and beliefs that make us Americans. Those beliefs rest on honesty, integrity, and fairness. That is the thread that holds us together as citizens of this great country.
In less than 3 weeks, if congress fails to act, 9 million children could loose access to healthcare. These children come from low income families across the United States. It is our duty as citizens and responsible members of our community to protect our children.
Over the last 150 years people have paid the ultimate sacrifice to preserve those values. These beliefs inspired a generation. The Declaration of Independence, Our Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Pledge of Allegiance all embrace these principles that we hold dear. We should honor these pledges.
