Victory Speeches for America


On of the bedrock principles of the country is the peaceful transition of power. Last night, when President Elect Biden and Vice President Elect Harris spoke to the nation for the first time as "Elects' it was clear that the healing process must begin now. 

Part of the healing process involves changing the mood of the nation and I believe we saw that on display yesterday in the spontaneous and peaceful celebrations that occurred across the country once the news organizations unanimously announced that the Biden-Harris team would be the winners of the election. 

I know there are those out there that are angry, scared, and working to undermine the victory for America, but we need a time for healing and changing the machinery of America from internal fighting to unity and again leading the world. I found the the fireworks in London and church bells in Paris to be a clear sign that our best allies want America to be back as a world leader.

I found these words spoken by the president-elect to be especially insightful:

For all those of you who voted for President Trump, I understand the disappointment tonight. I’ve lost a couple of times myself. But now, let’s give each other a chance. It’s time to put away the harsh rhetoric, lower the temperature, see each other again, listen to each other again. And to make progress, we have to stop treating our opponents as our enemies. They are not our enemies. They are Americans. They are Americans.  (Global News)

It is time for a mood change and a rebirth of America. The time for pettiness and the spouting of irrational grievances is over. The time of hope, grace, and civility is arriving.

With full hearts and steady hands, with faith in America and in each other, with love of country, a thirst for justice, let us be the nation that we know we can be. A nation united. A nation strengthened. A nation healed. The United States of America. (Joe Biden)

Last night, for the first time in four years, we saw a victory speeches for America!
