Our country remains a remarkable, unparalleled and bountiful nation, but there are too many Americans who have become grumpy and entitled; mistrusting and cynical; exhausted and withdrawn. And America has changed; some think t for the better. There are many reasons for this, one being that we are an incredibly diverse nation with widely varying perspective. Worse yet, we have t had access to the facts. We have tons of information, about everything from the political situation, our ecomy, social issues, our culture pretty much every area of modern life. But they are often presented with spin, bias and agenda or perceived through filters based on our age, gender, and experience. When it comes to seeking solutions, it is time for us to once again embrace our sense of perspective, our spirit, our confidence, and above all, our sense of humor.
