A few years ago, our 6-year-old daughter brought home an assignment from school that asked students to finish this sentence: “I had $100, I would…” Our daughter had written, “I would give it to other people because I don’t need $100 dollars.” (I still have a photo of the assignment.). That’s the essence of why we vote the way we do: because we believe that everyone deserves to have what they need to succeed, and that we should love our neighbor as we love ourselves. – Vanessa
