What he said …

‘Most of the noise in our world these days is divisive: we are labeled red or blue, black or white, right or left, right or wrong, us or them. War has become the descriptive metaphor of choice for the media. But listen — listen to the strain of hope underneath the cacophony of chaos. Listen to the daily fidelity that is marked by all of those who get up every day and keep their promises. Hear the quotidian rhythm that is essential to the recipe for our connectedness. You can hear it in the clink of a cup or the word of a friend, in the bold marching of an earnest throng and the small gathering of people coming together to create a memory.’
