... What we heard was a deeply pessimistic vision of a country where we turn against each other, and turn away from the rest of the world. There were no serious solutions to pressing problems -- just the fanning of resentment, and blame, and anger, and hate.
And that is not the America I know. The America I know is full of courage, and optimism, and ingenuity. The America I know is decent and generous.One of those visions is not the America we know either ... at least pre- November 8 America. There's a good, optimistic vision of the future of America, and then there's an evil, pessimistic vision. It's up to us to shape which of those futures it will be, starting now.
