MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!
For all of us who are old enough to have children who were part of the Star Wars generation, it seemed to me, that those famous words should be how we begin 2017.
On Christmas Day, 2016, I attended the latest Star Wars movie "Rogue One" with my granddaughter, Harper, and son and daughter-in-law. See picture below, that's my son with his daughter! The movie is the "back story" of Star Wars, the beginning of the rebels' fight against the Empire. If you are going to see it, don't read any further. The very last scene is a flashback to the original movie, Carrie Fisher, as Princess Leia, receiving an important message about the rebel cause says, "There is Hope" Who would know that in a few days, Carrie Fisher and her mom, Debbie Reynolds, would be gone...the end of an era. I could not help but focus on her last words, that clear and simple message, "There is Hope"!
We all feel that way about the 2016 election of Donald Trump, "There is hope"...for our grandchildren and for the future of America.As we go forward into 2017, and the Inauguration of a new President, keep those words in mind "There is hope".To me this Presidential election was like that Star Wars. It took a great force of people to come together and create a grassroots effort. We lost many people along the way, but in the end, the "rebels won". Because of the efforts of many people, "There is hope".
So, my 2017 message to you is, "May the Force Be with You", as we go forward know you were a big part of that "Hope".
I will be sharing my thoughts on the election at our January meeting. I will be reviewing how the grassroots effort, which took place here in The Villages, made a difference and how those efforts were replicated across America. I will be sharing my view of the role we played and how we made a difference by committing our time, talent, and energy to a great cause. We want to share what took place and what we will be doing in 2017.Please bring your thoughts, write them down, share them at the meeting.
I look forward to seeing you at the meeting and working with you to make President Elect Donald Trump, all he will be.
Should be an interesting meeting!
Happy New Year
