These are extraordinary times and we hope they are the exception e.g. Pandemic, attack on the Capitol, Racial unrest and Election Chaos. All of this has transpired in the last year and some have yet to be resolved. We all have high hopes that most of these will be resolved sooner than later yet realize some will take considerably longer. It is in this respect it is essential we find common ground and work together in a common effort to defeat the adverse conditions that have plagued our country. Being the greatest democracy anywhere bears a responsibility that goes beyond our borders and requires we live up to the highest standards.
