America is well
While many despair at the hardening of political perspectives, it can be noted that America is well. America is compassion, defense of the weak, the desire to stand up for truth despite being outnumbered and threatened. America is looking after the infirm, widowed, children, hungry and the troubled who seem broken. America is merciful. America is not decided by elections or those put into authority to rule. America does not retaliate needlessly, seeks to improve, and fosters decency. America abides in the hearts and minds of the people of the land − citizen or not, regardless of age, sex, religion − its fountain of positive values. America engenders hope and finds her strength in the practice of goodness. America abounds.
