This post was written by Steve Markel, Muskegon County Democratic Party Chair, He read it at the Take Back the American Dream rally which was held on the steps of the capital last Saturday. The crowd loved it and chanted with him:
We Are One.
If we are to reclaim our middle class we must set aside our differences and remember that
WE ARE ONE
This country's Freedoms have been built by American soldiers’ sacrifices.
This country's economy has been built by the American hardworking middleclass' abilities.
This country's intellect has been built by our American public educational system.
Where would this country be if it weren’t for the American solider?
Where would Henry Ford be if it weren’t for labor?
Where would Bill Gates be if it weren’t for educators?
Let the terrorist that threaten our freedoms know, we are one.
Let the greedy that threaten to destroy the middle class know, we are one.
Let the uninformed that threaten to rob our children of an education know, we are one.
Stand up and be seen that we are one.
Shout out and be heard that we are one.
And never stop believing we are one.
