Hillary Clinton visited a Baptist Church in North Carolina on Sunday, where she told the crowd, “Love one another!”
“We are asked to love one another. We are not just urged, we are commanded,” she said. We are not just urged, we are commanded, she continued. “Jesus said it was the greatest of His commandments.”
“It’s a hard commandment to obey. Some days it’s really hard for me,” she said as the crowd laughed and applauded.
Clinton made her remarks at the Union Baptist Church in Durham, NC, where they gave her a standing ovation to welcome her.
She was joined by five women who were part of the “Mothers of the Movement” — mothers of black men who were killed by gun violence or police shootings.
“If we’re honest with each other, we know that we face the continuing challenge of systemic racism,” she said. “We know we face the continuing discrimination against African-Americans and in particular young African-American men and women.”
She called for everyone in the congregation to choose “hope over fear” in the United States and work to end racism in the country.
“There are many people in our country willing to reach across the divides, regardless of what you’ve heard in this campaign,” she said.
