I was distressed to see a recent article referring to young people living in "Post-Hope America." Bull on that!

There is no time or room for such pessimism. We are struggling; of that there is no doubt. But this is America—the greatest land in the world bar none. Much of the world is struggling in one way or another. There are always growing pains, individually or collectively, from which comes growth, progress, and strength.

This is Hopeful America. Of that I have no doubt and hope you feel the same.

America, land of the free and home of the brave will overcome whatever challenges stand in its way. That is my country tis of thee and needs to be yours as well.  Thank goodness every day that you live here. It is a beautiful and wonderful place. There is no place like it in the world and I have had the good fortune to be most everywhere. Trust me on this one.

 Bye For Now,
