From John Kerry

"This IS the most important election of our lives!"

a few excerpts from his message on November 1 in the Boston Globe and his Democratic National Convention Speech:

"...Whatever our faith, one belief should bind us all: the measure of our character is our willingness to give of ourselves for others and for our country."

"...Christopher Reeve...imagined living in a world where politics would never get in the way of hope."

"On Tuesday, Americans face a fundamental choice: We can choose to continue the failed policies of the past four years -- or we can vote for a fresh start for America."

"John Edwards and I will take this country in a new direction."

"If you join with me on Tuesday...together, we will lift up this nation with the confidence that our best days are still ahead."
