I hope to build a place where people can meet and unite on common goals rather than spend hours fighting. We need to work together. Unique and varying visions represent us as a whole, and we should do more to find solutions for everyone, rather than fight over principles that represent few.
The following quotes drive my desire to bring people together and find solutions in the most obvious over-looked ways, while maintaining the principles our founding fathers set forth to preserve the integrity and vision of America.
We are America.
