We vote to change the future. For our children, our grandchildren, and beyond.
Do you want quality public education for your grandchildren? VOTE.
Do you want clean water and air so your grandchildren can enjoy the outdoors? VOTE.
Do you want available healthcare so your grandchildren can be healthy and well? VOTE.
Do you want your grandchildren to have jobs that are fulfilling and that pay a fair wage? VOTE.
Do you want your grandchildren to be safe as they walk in their neighborhoods? VOTE.
Do you want your grandchildren to live side-by-side with all of the peoples of the world, learning new languages, new music, new foods, new religions, new beliefs? VOTE.
Face forward. Change the future. VOTE.
True, when we decide who to vote for, we look back, to the past. We look at what candidates and parties have done before. And we vote to reward them or to punish them, for what they’ve done in the past.
When we decide who to vote for, we look back to the past. But we only look back in an effort to make a better future.
Your vote doesn’t change the past. The past is gone, it’s done; the past doesn’t care how you vote today.
No, we don’t vote to change the past. We vote to change the future. Not our future, perhaps, but the future of our children, our grandchildren, and their children.
When we look to the future, what do we see? We see the children, grown-up. It’s the children who will actually experience the future we leave for them. It’s for the children that we change the future now.
