  • Hey everybody!

  • It's finally election night,

  • and I imagine that's welcome news to most of you, because, let's face it,

  • this has been an exhausting, stressful, and sometimes downright weird election for all of us.

  • But here's what I want everybody to know:

  • While we've certainly seen some new things this time around, what isn't new is that our democracy has always been rowdy and raucous.

  • We've been through tough and divisive elections before,

  • and we've always come out stronger for it.

  • That's what makes America special.

  • The idea that, while progress isn't guaranteed, each of us has the power to choose our path,

  • not just on nights like this, but every day in between.

  • It is a beautiful and fragile gift, and we should treat it that way.

  • So, whether your chosen candidates win or lose tonight, let's all agree, not only to stay engaged, but to push ourselves to do even better.

  • To vote not just when the president is on the ballot,

  • but for Congress, and mayor, and school board, and dog catcher.

  • To educate ourselves on the issues and join with our neighbors in tackling the ones that face our communities.

  • And most importantly, to see each other not simply as Democrats or Republicans,

  • but as fellow Americans.

  • To treat each other with the respect and empathy and kinship that titleAmericancommands.

  • That's especially true here on a place like Twitter, but it's something we can bring with us to everything we do, online and off.

  • We can choose to see the best in one another.

  • Have a good night everybody, and remember no matter what happens,

  • the sun will rise in the morning, and America will still be the greatest nation on earth.

Hey everybody!
