The election is over. Now, the real work for our government begins. It’s time to rise above partisanship. It’s time to unite a nation. It’s time to understand that I am my brother’s keeper and that what hurts one—hurts all. What benefits one—benefits all.

Congratulations to all those who worked hard and campaigned because they believed they could make a difference. We’re counting on you. These are tumultuous times. We need strong, inspired, visionary, thoughtful and action oriented men and women to help us deal with the issues facing our nation.

The elections are more crucial now than ever. It’s imperative that we rise above a win at all cost mentality. There is no them—only us. I encourage you, regardless of party affiliation, to look for and support wise, honest and true leadership. Rally around emerging leaders; those with a pure heart, who believe in the values of this nation and have a loyalty to their fellow man. People who can see the bigger picture. People who can rise above self-promotion, competition, greed and self-interest. People who understand that the parts make the whole and who can see the opportunities that exist in one of the greatest times in human history. We are that America. Instead of dividing over our differences, let’s remember that that is what makes us strong.

To Your Journey,
