We the People

American has just voted for #SocialChange and taken our first step to change our democratic process. We are moving into a #NewAmericanDemocracy and I am proud of this moment. Being born in 1968 coming into a world of change, I have a more optomistic view of social changes, disruption, and revolution. I remember watching the protests again busing minority children into majority white school districts, my Little Rock 9. I was uplifted when Reagen appointed Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, my Gloria Steinham. This country is moving in a new direction a movement building toward social change. I am disappointed that Ms Clinton chose not to speak tonight, but I understand her disappointment. She has worked her entire life to be president, to live up to those feminist goals and dreams my generation wanted to achieve. I hope the 1968 children will wake up and take stock of what our hopes and dreams have accomplished. We need to move past the goals set by our parents, that we can be anything, to set our own goals. The drive should not be for a woman president, but to make social justice, responsibility and change our goal. Working towards these goal to create a society that will elect a president based on their character, integrity and morality NOT gender or race. This is the time for #Millennials to be supported to make the changes to create the society that we were given and squandered. We should use this election to make Social Change our next challenge. Lets throw off the 2 party process, lets talk about how and why our democratic process was so divided, lets create the space for action, and lets act in the remembrance of our original Declaration of Independence:

Declaration of Independence
Declaration of Independence

“That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security”
