America is built on better things than the base. The base hatreds, the base emotions, the base prejudices.

America's foundations are those of liberty and democracy, and the knowledge that unity is strength.

America has inspired others through time and around the world, and I trust that America will rise out of the current sickness and uncertainty to be the world's great example once again.

I see hatred and brutality and selfishness, but I also see Americans of grace and dignity and thoughtful caring. I trust that the good will outweigh the evil, when given a true test of democracy.
