There is a deep turbulence stirring in the hearts of many, many Americans, as we watch the pillars of our democracy chipped away at by unscrupulous people. I place my bet on those in this generation who, like generations before us, will only take so much before we say, “No more.”

Even when the crisis ends, the only way we’ll be safe is if we usher in a new era of international cooperation in order to prepare for its possible re-emergence in the future. Humanity is one ecosystem and we’ll have to start living that way. All will be safe or none will be safe
