Battle for the Soul of the Nation

In Gettysburg, Pennsylvania on October 6, 2020 Joe Biden gave a blockbuster speech calling for the nation to put aside division and come together.

He talked about race: “Think about what it takes for a Black person to love America. That is a deep love for this country that for far too long we have never fully recognized.” He talked about disparities of wealth: “Working people and their kids deserve an opportunity.”

“Today we are engaged once again in a battle for the soul of the nation,” Biden said. “After all that America has accomplished, after all the years we have stood as a beacon of light to the world, it cannot be that here and now, in 2020, we will allow government of the people, by the people, and for the people to perish from this earth.

“You and I are part of a great covenant, a common story of divisions overcome and of hope renewed,” he said. “If we do our part, if we stand together, if we keep faith with the past and with each other, then the divisions of our time can give way to the dreams of a brighter, better, future.”

We’re in a battle for the soul of this nation. Who we are, what we stand for, and who we want to be — it’s all at stake. If we’re going to get through these crises, we need to come together and unite for a better America. We’ve got to elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
