Consider planting (in the minds and spirits of the people) lettuce to let us come together in unity and plant vast rows of turnips so that citizens turn up to vote and vote with conviction; squash to squash out and let us not stand with intolerance, indifference and ill-will; plant peas of purpose, to plan and prosper productively for all that are willing to work together and thrive as we face the future with high hopes and great expectations for our county, state and country.
