I sense today, maybe it’s the summer weather changing to autumn, that our country is beginning to cooperate in the political arena. People are tired of the divisiveness and fighting. They simply want our Congress to work for all the people. As of today I see the extremes moving towards the center for the overall good of this wonderful country we live in. Sending my prayers to all so we can work together and make this nation better than in the past. We can become our best self as a country. I send my gratitude to the police officers serving for this honorary week. I hope we all can continue to work together for the good of our nation. Thanks be to God. Amen.
