The United States is a beautiful mosaic of people. We are women and men, straight and gay, of every race, color, ethnicity, national origin, and religion. We have varying beliefs and live and work together in communities—large and small—urban, suburban, and rural.

The tie that binds us is a common set of values and beliefs, foremost of which is summed up by our national motto: E Pluribus Unum, out of many one.
