Wow.. I really enjoyed this. Thank you! I wish you luck in your journey. The fate of our nation depends on it! I don’t believe that to be an overstatement. Your description is one that MANY Americans feel they share with you regardless of what side of the ideological divide they come from. Identifying and expressing common values we all as humans and,more specifically ,Americans hold dear is a very important tool in cutting through the polarization. I hope you continue to be strong voice on this topic! I wish you luck and pray for strength for you in the future as you continue this journey!
