We live in a nation and a world that is divided over so many things. Rather than focus on the many things that unite us, we search for the things that divide us. Instead of embracing our differences and being thankful for them, we choose to use them as a source of fuel to further ignite our anger towards another.
I would like you to join me on a journey. I once heard a saying many times during my career in the Armed Forces, "Leave it better than you found it." That's what this is all about. My attempt to leave this broken and bitter world better than how I found it. To leave today better than it was when I first woke up.
