Thank you for promoting this important idea. National service could form a new connective tissue in a society where too many young people are left to fend for themselves. Thank you also, Secretary Clinton, for standing up so effectively to the bully, Donald J. Trump, including during your triumphant and brilliant performance at the first debate. How wonderful that more of us are finally getting to see the person your closest friends and advisors have been talking about with such affection for so long. Go Hillary!
