In the wake of the monumental election that elevated Donald Trump to the office of President of the United States, I decided to record a podcast sharing my thoughts on the state of hope and optimism. In short, I feel both hope and optimism thanks to people like Jared Rivera.
Politics and, perhaps more specifically, politicians can be very divisive. So, however you feel about the Hilary Clinton or Donald Trump, what I want you to take out of this is episode is that my friend Jared Rivera is a man who cares deeply about his country. Whatever side you fall on with concern to the election, your passion is born from that same place. You also love your country and, like Jared, you simply want it to always be its best. And that’s really the point.
For all of the anger and passion we’ve seen on the news and social media and, frankly, on the very streets we live on, it’s all born out of the same place. People just want what’s best for the world. And Americans just want what’s best for America.
Maybe we can’t agree on what’s best for the world, but it doesn’t mean than anybody is wrong for wanting what they believe is best.
