Joe Biden feels that this year democracy was tested when the COVID-19 virus hit. Even though the virus hit, people showed up in large numbers to cast their ballots for the US presidential elections.

He motivated the nation to not lose hope and be thankful this Thanksgiving.

“Let us be thankful for democracy itself. In this election year, we have seen record numbers of Americans exercise their most sacred right — that of the vote — to register their will at the ballot box. Think about that. In the middle of a pandemic, more people voted this year than have ever voted in the history of America,” Biden said in his Thanksgiving address from Wilmington in Delaware on Wednesday.

Over 150 million people cast a ballot. That is simply extraordinary, he said.

“If you want to know what beats deep in the heart of America, it’s this: democracy. The right to determine our lives, our government, our leaders. The right to be heard. Our democracy was tested this year. And what we learned is this: The people of this nation are up to the task,” Biden said.

“In America, we have full and fair and free elections, and then we honour the results. The people of this nation and the laws of the land won’t stand for anything else. Through the vote — the noblest instrument of non-violent protest ever conceived — we are reminded anew that progress is possible,” he said.

“That ‘We the People’ have the power to change what Jefferson called “the course of human events.

“That with our hearts and hands and voices, today can be better than yesterday, and tomorrow can be better still. We should be thankful, too, that America is a covenant and an unfolding story,” he added.

The President-Elect called for uniting the country.

“You want us — Democrats and Republicans and Independents — to come together and work together. And that, my friends, is what I am determined to do. Americans dream big. And as hard as it may seem this Thanksgiving, we are going to dream big again,” he said.

He also took note of the fact that the country faces a long, hard winter. Joe Biden also said Americans have fought a nearly year-long battle with a virus in this nation.

“It’s brought us pain and loss and frustration, and it has cost so many lives – 260,000 Americans and counting. It has divided us, angered us, and set us against one another. I know the country has grown weary of the fight,” he said.

“But we need to remember we’re at a war with a virus, not with each other. This is the moment where we need to steel our spines, redouble our efforts, and recommit ourselves to the fight. Let’s remember — we are all in this together,” he said.
