I am basically an optimist, but an impatient one. I have been discouraged over the past years about the slow pace of social and cultural relational improvement among all people.
This past week I have been inspired by the youth of our nation with respect to gun violence. Collectively they have moved the needle nationally to help implement common sense gun control regulations. They have shined a bright light on politicians of every stripe who have been reluctant to protect them from gun violence.
No one else has accomplished this in the decades of debate about this issue. I am encouraged about the future of America because of their courage and dedication. Thank you and don’t give up!
