There were times in our history when our democracy was not truly a democracy, when some Americans had no voice, but that isn’t true anymore. This is our country and it will become what we make of it. We are not victims. We have a choice. Go out and make that choice.
And do yourselves a favor: mark down November 2, 1920 in your calendars. Remember it whether you’re a man or a woman and regardless of the color of your skin because, although we accomplished our democracy in fits and starts over a lot of years, we did accomplish it in the end on THIS date. So remember November 2, 1920, because, in a way, today was the 87th anniversary of the day America truly became the United States.”
