January 6, 2021, will be a day long remembered. Our children and children’s children will be asked about the day’s events on their history tests. Today, is the day we begin to tell our children our thoughts. It is now time to choose our words well. People died, our capitol was breached, hundreds were hurt, and the world stood in horror. Kids Voting USA respects the rule of law, our constitution, and our country’s long standing quest for truth and justice for all. We ask, please, whatever your political party views are, that your focus is to teach your children that the power of our democracy is dependent on 1) each of us respecting one another, 2) learning to research facts when there is a political dispute, and 3) honoring our constitution and rule of law. With these three guides, we will do more than survive. We will thrive. We the people are the United States of America.
