Democracy means inclusion, democracy means tolerance

Democracy means diversity, hope, and democracy means a chance

Democracy means freedom of the press, and freedom of religion

Democracy means a shining city on a hill and it means welcome

 

Democracy doesn't mean mean-spirited and it doesn't mean hate

Democracy doesn't mean intolerance, democracy doesn't mean closed

Democracy should be something to aspire to, democracy means we the people

all the people, standing tall: democracy means a helping hand, not a closed fist

 

Democracy means embracing the world, not building walls to keep them out

Democracy means inquiring minds and wide-open eyes, not close-minded paranoia

Democracy used to mean pride, not leaders who bring embarrassment and shame
