It’s the Fourth of July, and I’m going to spend it contemplating a better future for our country. Despite the news of late, I refuse to waste my energy on despair. Despair is boring. Despair brings nothing of value. Hope, however, is a generative, powerful force. Hope and determination. Hope plays a long game, hope is a marathon, hope demands of us a beautiful endurance that will outlast all else.
I truly believe that. I truly believe in us.
