It is November 6.
In a few hours, we will know who will lead the country at local, state and federal (Congress) levels. Results will matter deeply! They will shape the US, and the world, in fundamental ways.
As results come in, let’s not forget that we are more alike than we are different—as the late Senator John McCain so poignantly reminded us.
No matter whom we voted for, or who wins, let’s commit to some simple fundamentals …
… dialogue is the most powerful bridge between different views
… family and community come before politics
… local actions matter
… democracy is worth preserving, and requires continued participation of all citizens.
There is a tomorrow. Let’s make it bright, above and beyond an imperfect political system.
