“Will we be a nation where there’s only one way to love, only one way to look, and only one way to live? Or will be we be a nation where everyone has the freedom to live openly and equally, a nation that’s stronger together?” —Sarah McBride, the first transgender person to address a major party convention

“[The Rodon Group], here where we are at this moment, prints all our parts, they make all of our parts

“[The Rodon Group], here where we are at this moment, prints all our parts, they make all of our parts. So that’s right around the corner—we’re sister companies. It’s all U.S. made. We’re proud of that. We see it since we live it every day, it’s second nature to us. We see it out on the market. People like our products because they’re U.S. made. In some cases, it just doesn’t make feasible sense. To me, on the other side, I see that there’s a lot of costs for bringing things from China. It takes longer to produce. There’s shipping costs, there’s tariffs, there’s all kind of extraneous costs. Even with those costs, it’s still cheaper to make it overseas. It’s a shame. All of these things should be one here in America, in the United States.” —Cruz Mejias, creative group manager at K’NEX, with his wife during a stop on Hillary and Tim Kaine’s Stronger Together bus tour

I was very moved to see Ghazala Khan stand bravely and with dignity in support of her son on Thursday night

I was very moved to see Ghazala Khan stand bravely and with dignity in support of her son on Thursday night. And I was very moved to hear her speak last night, bravely and with dignity, about her son’s life and the ultimate sacrifice he made for his country.

This is a time for all Americans to stand with the Khans, and with all the families whose children have died in service to our country. And this is a time to honor the sacrifice of Captain Khan and all the fallen. Captain Khan and his family represent the best of America, and we salute them.
