As people around the country celebrate this 4th of July, it is my greatest hope that this country can move away from a “compassionate conservatism” approach to addressing our socio-economic problems to a true Age of Compassion…an Age in which compassion and love is interwoven throughout the fabric of our thoughts, lives and actions and take root in our social programs and institutions. Celebrate with the knowledge that this country must and deserves the chance to evolve.
Happy 4th of July! Celebrate wisely and with love!
