Clarion call to vote
7/13/2018, 5:35 p.m.
During former President Richard Nixon’s impeachment hearing, the late Congresswoman Barbara Jordan said the following:
“My faith in the Constitution is whole, it is complete, it is total. I am not going to sit here and be an idle spectator to the diminution, the subversion, the destruction of the Constitution.”
Today, we are in a fight for our democracy. I can hear Barbara Jordan’s clarion call for constitutional justice. I hear her clarion call to save our humanity and to save our nation.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s words still ring true: “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”
We must lift every voice.
Lift every vote.
