Welcome to the week.
President Obama addressed the nation from the Oval Office last night in the wake of last week’s shootings in San Bernardino, California.
My takeaway for today, and this week: Beyond the contours of our foreign and domestic policy (and make no mistake, the issues are as serious as they are complex) we must remember to aspire to our best selves, especially in the face of fear and uncertainty.
Let’s make sure we never forget what makes us exceptional. Let’s not forget that freedom is more powerful than fear. –President Barack Obama
