Wishing You All a Happy New Year

First off, I just want to thank each and every one of you who read this blog, share its posts and believe in the same ideals of compassion and empathy that Robert Kennedykennedy stood for his entire life. I’ll be back at the beginning of the new year with new posts. I’ve just been organizing my thoughts and understanding the long road ahead of us.

We have a lot of work to do in the upcoming year, beginning with getting Robert Kennedy’s message out to the public, sharing this blog, and practicing compassion and empathy in a country where it’s beginning to seem that selfishness is the new normal.

We cannot allow this to happen, and I know you all agree. So get some rest, enjoy the rest of your holiday season because come January 1st, we’ve got to roll up our sleeves and get to work.

And I’m looking forward to all of you joining me, because the only way to go is up, and together we can make a difference.
