From Los Angeles to Boston and from Minneapolis to Miami, women and men joined their hands and hearts this weekend to call out for justice and peace in our nation. They announced to the country and the world that and “we must care for our common home,” that "black lives matter,” and that it is past time for women to take their place in the halls of government and wherever important decisions are made. I heard a call for inclusiveness and for more beauty, wisdom, and truth to echo in the streets and homes where people live in fear of deportation. Yes, now is the time to take back our country. It is a time to march in the streets and to march to the ballot box. Today we realize that there is much more that is possible for us to do and that the founding principles of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are our legacy and are within our reach. Today is a new time when every child who is born should be able to look forward to a future full of promise where his or her destiny can be fulfilled.
