Today as I look at our country and our nation, my vision has changed.  I used to look at 2020 and see change, but now leadership at all levels has cast a blur on what I see for our future.  

My vision is now 2040.  Why 2040?  Well in the next few weeks, my first grandson will be born.  Like many children born in 2020, you have to wonder what the next 20 years have in store for them and our great country.  What is the vision for 2040? 

If you consider where our great nation started from and where we are today, you can find turmoil and civil unrest — at all levels — that we have overcome.  Our history has always taught us that together we can overcome much by learning from our past, not erasing it.
