The presidential election had me on edge as though I was watching the New England Patriots come back from a 28–3 lead against the Atlanta Falcons in the Super Bowl. I’m not saying it was entertainment, but it had a lot to do with how our nation would be led in the following four years.
As someone who’s not particularly involved in politics, I can respect quality speech. Joe Biden’s presidential acceptance speech was immensely empathetic and gave Americans a lot of the reassurance they have been. seeking.
Actions speak louder than words, and if Biden promises to bring the Pandemic to an end, bridge the gap of inequality, and restore hope in America, then that’s amazing.
Here are three quotes that stood out the most in Joe Biden’s acceptance speech that are worth noting.
I pledge to be a president who seeks not to divide but unify. Who doesn’t see red states or blue states — only the sees the United States. I’ll work as hard for those who didn’t vote for me as those who did.
— Joe Biden
In recent years and especially months, the United States has been divided. There have been numerous occasions where it seemed like empathy was a thing of the past.
Here are a few of the most groundbreaking:
- A pandemic that has killed more than 100,000 Americans
- An economy devastated
- A climate rapidly overheating.
- Inequality, injustice, and racism
Biden says that he “seeks not to divide but unify.” We will see if the people come together and empathize with one another.
Seeing people actually listen to one another and connect on a deeper level rather than blaming or undermining the severity of issues would be very reassuring to the nation.
This is the time to heal in America. Don’t Keep the faith, spread it.
— Joe Biden
America is hurting, and it needs a leader who can offer hope and reassurance. There have been so many heartbreaks and tragedies that have happened within the past year.
From the tragedy of George Floyd to thousands of innocent lives being taken due to the hands of Covid-19. Biden is stepping into the presidency at an incredibly integral point in time.
There will be issues to tackle regardless of who is president, but I feel like Biden has a lot on his plate in the next four years.
America is a place of faith and hope. Biden preached not to keep hope alive, but to spread it. The United States is the land of “possibilities,” and it’s his goal for us all to spread that hope, not hold it inside of us.
It’s a tough time to be optimistic, but Joe Biden offered a lot of empathy and faith in America's future.
The battle to restore decency, defend democracy, and give everybody in this country a fair shot. That’s all they’re asking for, a fair shot.
— Joe Biden
Everyone living in America has incredible opportunities to do anything they want. They can become the CEO of a company or farm in the fields all their lives. Whatever makes them happy is what they can do.
Biden stated that he wants to reinforce decency and to listen to the people. He wants to give everyone “a fair shot.”
This speaks volumes and resonates with anyone who feels like they’re on the marginalized end of the spectrum. Biden seeks to be more inclusive rather than exclusive with his fellow Americans.
Joe Biden’s acceptance speech emphasizes empathy, feelings, and hope. One of the best public speakers and 44th president, Barack Obama, reassured Americans and hope they needed.
I believe we see the same thing with Joe Biden. Here are his quotes again.
- “I pledge to be a president who seeks not to divide but unify. Who doesn’t see red states or blue states — only the sees the United States. I’ll work as hard for those who didn’t vote for me as those who did”.
- “This is the time to heal in America. Don’t Keep the faith, spread it”.
- “The battle to restore decency, defend democracy, and give everybody in this country a fair shot. That’s all they’re asking for, a fair shot.”
The people at his acceptance speech and across the nation seem to be happy with their new leader and see the possibilities that America has to offer. It’ll be fascinating to see how Biden serves his term in office.
