In my lifetime, I have never witnessed a Presidential race so lacking in intelligence and integrity. This is hardly the political culture that Raymond, Helen and the other victims and survivors of the Great Depression and World War II envisioned for America. We owe it to America’s Greatest Generation, those that sustained our country through its most challenging times, to do better. We have an obligation to our children, grandchildren and their descendants, to leave this world better than we found it.
Many will worry while waiting for someone to arrive on the political scene to provoke change. Perhaps a glance in the mirror will reveal those who need to instigate that change. “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; for indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead
