That Kind Of Leadership

I have been amazed at the incredible bravery of our medical professionals who are putting their lives on the line to save others; the public servants and health officials battling this disease; the workers taking risks every day to keep our economy running and everyone who is making their own sacrifice at home with their families all for the greater good.  But if there is one thing we have learned as a country from moments of great crisis, it is that the spirit of looking out for one another can't be restricted to our homes or our workplaces or our neighborhoods or our houses of worship -- it also has to be reflected in our national government.  The kind of leadership that is guided by knowledge and experience, honesty and humility, empathy and grace.

That kind of leadership doesn't just belong in our state capitals and mayor's offices, it belongs in the White House.
