Before the BOG is shut down I want to share the following excerpt from a letter I received

from BO in 2015. It should be a reminder to us of our end goal as we prepare for 2020 and life after Trump.

“We also need to protect a Government of, by, and for the people that serves ordinary Americans and ensures their voices are not drowned out by millions of dollars in secret, special interest advertising. Allowing corporate and special interest takeovers of our elections is damaging to our democracy. And both parties in Congress need to come together to solve our country’s problems and rebuild the trust of the people who sent us here.

The constant cycle of manufactured crises and self?inflicted wounds created by Washington has undermined our economy, and it has to stop. We must invest in ourselves and build a country where anyone who works hard has a chance to reach for our Nation’s promise.”

My final comment: in a country as diverse as ours if we don’t lose faith we cannot fail.

It's hard to keep up these days.
