People write to me to ask why I have hope in our future despite all the trouble in the world, and the answer is always: I have faith because of you.
The biggest miracle about these Letters from an American is the community that has gathered around them. It is made up of decent, principled, smart, creative, and thoughtful people from all around the world, and it is a never ending source of wonder to me that I have the extraordinary opportunity to meet many of you and to eavesdrop on your conversations as you work together to move our country, and our world, forward.
I’m going to go to sleep tonight instead of writing, so am sharing this image from my friend Peter for my friend Nadia, from Maine to Ukraine, because we are all in this together.
I’ll see you tomorrow.
