In January of 1961 JFK famously said, “ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” As I watched the democratic national convection the sound of JFK’s voice rung through my head. 

 

We watched history being made and listened to warning shots from many who have been around the block of politics a time or two. These warnings were not just from Democrats but republicans alike. So what can I do for my country? I can vote in November. 

 

We listened as people told us their struggles with injustices and lack of resources. We watched as people who never thought they would walk to the other side of the aisle and endorsed someone from another party. That the country really does matter more than a party. So what can I do? I can listen to these men and women and vote in November 

 

We watched as the first African-American woman accepted her nomination as VP. We listened as she promised to make this country a better place to live. And we watched as she made promises that she believes in because she wants to see this country, the country that she believes in do better. She’s willing to served our country. What can I do? I can vote her into serve and make this a better place to be. 

 

We watched a wife come one and tell us about her husband. How he put his family back together after loss and heart break struck. She spoke about her love and fight for education and how much she wishes she could be in the halls with her students again. She spoke of the loss of her son, and that being the very reason that her husband kept going, the reason he keeps fighting. She’s ready to teach our students again and support her husband and this country. What can I do? I can vote for her husband and watch as she takes on being First Lady with grace.

 

We watched as a man who has dedicated his life to fighting for what is right for America tell us why he is the best person to take on the leadership role. He wants to fight for our healthcare workers, he wants to fight for the average American to get ahead, he wants to fight for the teachers to get back into their classes rooms safely, he wants to fight to make American self sufficient again. And he wants to fight for you. He wants to lead. So what can I do? 

 

What I can do for my country is vote in November. I can vote for principles. And I can vote for kindness and compassion. I can vote because our country, and it’s people matter. And I can vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in November, that’s what I can do for my country.
