What did Vice President-elect Kamala Harris tell the nation?

Good evening.
 

Congressman John Lewis wrote before his death: "Democracy is not a state. It is an act.

 

And that meant that American democracy was not’ guaranteed.

 

It is as strong as our willingness to fight it, to protect it and never to despise it.

 

And we need a struggle to protect our democracy.

 

It takes sacrifice. There is happiness and progress.

 

Because we have the power to create a better future for the people.

 

And when our democracy was on the ballot in this election, the very soul of America was in danger, and the world was watching, you started a new day for America.

 

For our campaign staff and volunteers, this extraordinary team. Thank you for bringing more people into the democratic process than ever before and for making this victory possible.

 

To our country's election workers and election officials who have worked tirelessly to ensure that every vote is counted’ - our nation is grateful to you for protecting the integrity of our democracy.

 

And for the American people who make up our beautiful country - thank you for changing the record number to make your voices heard.

 

I know times have been challenging, especially over the last several months.

 

Grief, sorrow and pain. Anxiety and struggle.

 

But we have also seen your courage, your resilience, and your generosity of spirit.

 

For 4 years, you marched and organized for equality and justice, our lives and our planet.

 

And then, you voted. You gave a clear message.

 

You chose hope, unity, politeness, science, and, yes, truth.

 

You chose Biden as the next president of the United States.

 

Which is healing. One unit An experienced and strong hand.

 

A person who experiences his own loss gives him a sense of purpose that will help him regain his sense of purpose as a nation.

 

And a man with a big heart who gives up.

 

It's their love, which will be the wonderful first lady.

 

She loves Hunter, Ashley, her grandchildren, and the entire Biden family.

 

And when I first met Joe as vice president, I really knew him as the father who loved my dear friend Beau, whom we remember here today.

 

To my husband Doug, our children Cole and Ellie, my sister Maya, and our whole family - I love you more than I can express.

 

We are very grateful to Joe and Jill for welcoming our family on this incredible journey.

 

And most responsible for my presence here today is this woman - my mother, North Gopalan Harris, who has always been in our hearts.

 

When she came here from India at the age of 19, she probably didn't even imagine it at that moment.

 

But she believed so deeply in an America that such a moment was possible.

 

So, I'm thinking about it and the race of women - black women.

 

Native American women in the history of Asian, White, Latina, and our entire nation who paved the way for this moment tonight.

 

Women who have fought and sacrificed so much for equality, freedom and justice for all, including black women, who are often overlooked, but often prove that they are our democracy Are the backbone of.

 

All the women who have worked for more than a century to protect and preserve the right to vote: 100 years ago with the 19th Amendment, 55 years ago with the Voting Rights Act, and now, in 2020, in our country With a new generation of women who exercised their right to vote and continued to fight for their basic right to vote and be heard.

 

Tonight, as I reflect on their struggles, their determination, and the power of their vision - to see how much of what has been done’ can be a burden - I stand on their shoulders.

 

And what a testament to Joe's role that he had the courage to break through the biggest barriers in our country and elect a woman as his vice president.

 

But while I am the first woman in this office, I will not be the last.

 

Because every little girl watching tonight sees that this is a land of possibilities.

 

And for the children of our country, regardless of your gender, our country has sent you a clear message:

 

Dream with desire, guide with certainty, and see yourself in a way that others may not see you, because they have never seen you before.

 

And we will appreciate your every move.

 

For the American people:

 

No matter who you vote for, I'll try to be the vice president who was President Obama - loyal, honest and willing, waking up every day thinking about you and your family. Free Because now the real work begins.

 

Hard work, essential work, good work

 

Essential work to save lives and defeat this epidemic.

 

To rebuild our economy so that it works for the people who work

 

To eradicate systemic racism in our justice system and society.

 

To deal with the climate crisis l.

 

Unite your country and heal the soul of your nation.

 

The way forward will not be easy.

 

But America is ready. And so are I.

 

We have chosen a president who represents us best.

 

A leader will respect the world and our children can find it.

 

A Commander-in-Chief who will respect our troops and keep our country safe.

 

And a president for all Americans.

 

It is now a great honor for me to be elected’ President of the United States of America, who introduced Biden.
