WE BELIEVE in the ideals that define America: liberty, equality, and justice.
WE BELIEVE the idea of America is ennobled, and the future of America is
strengthened, when Americans come together to serve their country.
WE BELIEVE there is no challenge that cannot be met with the energy,
creativity, and determination of the American people.
WE BELIEVE all individuals can make a difference and anyone can be
great because anyone can serve.
TO LIVE in America is both a blessing and a responsibility, and service to community and country is at the heart of true patriotism. Ever since our Founders pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to each other and the cause of independence, each generation of Americans has stepped forward to serve in the defense of our freedom and ideals.
TO HONOR the sacrifices of those who have gone before us, and to bequeath a stronger and more just nation to future generations, we too stand ready to unite and serve. We pledge to challenge cynicism, and to serve over our lifetimes to secure a brighter future for all.
WE ARE READY TO SERVE
WE CALL on each other and leaders from all sectors of American life, private, public, and non-profit, to work together to create ample opportunities for citizens to serve their communities, their country, and the world.
WE ENCOURAGE all communities to build upon the strength of our nation’s
diversity of ideas, experience, and perspectives as we unite to serve.
WE ARE READY to meet the challenges of our time. We are ready to do our part in America’s timeless quest for a more perfect union, and I am ready to begin now by adding my name to this Declaration.

I believe that together we are better. Helping others and helping each other is the way to be strong. I’m a bilingual woman that helps to translate for others in the school parents centers, in the school special education meetings or any place where somebody needs that help.
I teach my children to be proud of their grandparents heritage and they are bilingual too. My little boy was in the DMV line with me and other woman in front of the line had problems communicating with the officer, the boy step up in front of the desk and start translating for the lady both people resolve the issue and my son returned close to me. He was smiling and hug me without saying a word. That was a gift for me because he show me he is ready to serve and help others. That is my legacy for my children. We are not rich but I feel they get a better future because their service.
I plan to serve until my last day, I sign to donate organs for a last gift.
Together we can make a change, and a better future.
