I am so proud of my partners for believing in this concept and providing the resources to help it become a success, and equally proud of our staff for the love and nurturing it takes to make any business work.
Needless to say, we would have liked to have skipped 2020, but we made it through, and look to the future with great optimism.
Of course, we have all been through a harrowing experience.
COVID-19 has ravaged our country and world.
We elected a new President.
People in the greatest country in the history of the world are hungry.
Our cities are shuttered, our favorite restaurants are unable to operate, and our political system is dysfunctional.
I don’t have all the answers. Some may think I don’t have any answers.
But after doing some soul searching, here is my advice:
Since I believe EVERYTHING happens for a reason, I suggest letting your GOD handle your stress. There is no problem he hasn’t brought to you for a purpose, and no situation too big for him.
Be grateful for ALL that you have.
I also believe, we must, as a nation, push for term limits. Making decisions based on political expediency does not work for the common good.
In many cases, our founding fathers gave up lucrative careers and financial hardships to donate their time for political SERVICE.
Lifelong politicians whose main purpose is to get re-elected don’t help the cause.
The problem is—they will never vote for it because they would be limiting their own careers and influence.
That is why it will take a groundswell of support by us, THE PEOPLE, to demand a 2-term limit for their service, and perhaps a ban on working for a lobbyist after their term has ended.
Is it a long shot? Absolutely.
But it makes sense, doesn’t it?
Limit the term, and 10 years from now we will see if we have saved our nation from destroying itself.
