The Democratic Convention for 2020 is over, and the real work begins now.

Former Vice President Joe Biden has accepted the awesome responsibility to be the candidate for the Democratic Party and Senator Kamala Harris has accepted the job of vice president of the Democratic Party in 2020.

President Donald Trump is the current president of America, and the incumbent is always the candidate to beat, because the power of the country is in his hands.

From the very beginning of this election, President Trump has tried to sabotage the results by subverting voting, destroying the postal service, and eliminating Democrats from statewide election polls.

Voting is sacred

Instead of expanding the voting, the Trump administration has made it harder to vote by eliminating polling locations, and harassing voters at the polls.The most important message during the four days of the Democratic convention is that voting is sacred, and your vote is your voice and it does count. Don’t let the Republicans take away your power with distractions and corruption.

Under the Trump administration the American Democratic system is holding on by a thread, and this election is a fight for leadership, and the “Soul of America.’

In America there has never been a COVID-19 pandemic, and the entire world has been affected or impacted by it. In order for America to move forward, it must get the pandemic under control.

The future is at a standstill, and it does not matter what lies are told to the citizens, the numbers tell the truth. With over 177,000 dead and over 5.7 million infected with the virus, you can run, but you cannot hide.

Time for change

President Trump has failed, and it is time for a change in leadership, and a new administration. No one has all the answers but running for the highest office in the land must start with decency and respect for all the citizens in the country.

In the next five years the majority of American will be multicultural and the majority of the officials should reflect the people they represent.

In this Democratic Convention there was a major contrast to the philosophy and policy of the Republican and Trump administration. With President Trump it appears that the focus is on the wealthy, and increasing and expanding their riches, and American citizens don’t matter.

Biden’s America

This will be the primary difference in the election because Biden will work to improve the lives of all Americans. Systemic inequality and racism will determine who is welcome at the table and in Biden’s America everyone will be afforded a seat at the table.

Out of tragedy comes strength, and at the convention Vice President Biden explained to America and the world, why he is a man of courage, resilience, and faith. His first wife and daughter died in a car accident, and his son died of cancer.

But Biden never stopped moving forward, and he speaks truth to power by believing the majority of Americans are decent, loving, and want the best for each other.

In a bold and powerful decision, Vice President Biden proved he was a man of his word and picked a woman to be on his ticket as vice president.

The winning ticket

He chose the first Black woman, and first Asian American woman, Senator Kamala Harris, in a triumphant moment, and made history. She is a graduate of Howard University, my alma mater which leaves its students with a mission to change the world.

“She had the best recommendation, she can get: my son. They were good friends and Beau had great respect for Kamala, knew she was tough.

She has a backbone like a ramrod. She’s completely, thoroughly honest,” says Biden.

The Biden and Harris team is a ticket that will give Americans light, and extraordinary possibilities. The ticket will unify America and return dignity and respect to the office of the president and vice president.
