We hear every year that the state of our union is strong.
We heard it again this week.
What do you think?
Does our union feel strong?
Does it feel like we are united in our efforts?
Here is how George Washington concluded the first
State of the Union address back in 1790...
"The welfare of our Country is the great object
to which our cares and efforts ought to be directed.
And I shall derive great satisfaction from a co-operation with you,
in the pleasing though arduous task of ensuring to our fellow Citizens the blessings,
which they have a right to expect,
from a free, efficient and equal Government."
Let's try to harness that sense of
We the People
for improving the
State of our Union
"Meet in the Middle"
