After a polarizing presidential election race, I’ve elected to take my own oath:
First of all, I believe in America, the Beautiful, with its human diversity being a stronghold of its lasting fabric. Diversity is not an synonym for divisiveness; instead, it’s an enriching voice for the greater whole.
Furthermore, unity and peace, I know, begin with me. With my heart, my mind and my actions.
Opposing forces, such as this recent campaign, were created by fierce passion. However, that same level of passion can also heal and bring us stronger together. It was proven after 9/11 and other national disruptions.
And, again, it comes back to me. What will I do to foster a more positive future?
I choose to embrace what’s good in our nation and its people. I aim to be a champion for my fellow citizens and for what’s truly possible when we as a country stick together.
And, love can be some pretty powerful glue.
Love and light,
