When I look back over the last year I know that what we have accomplished was only made possible by a lot of "cookie jars"--- the small stashes of retirees and young couples and people who know in their hearts that "something" is wrong---- just like our book title: "You Know Something Is Wrong When.....An American Affidavit of Probable Cause".
So you've sent me your $10s and your $20s and even your $19s and every time I open an envelope and read the notes knowing that I might be able to reply to one in five or ten with a thank you, I nonetheless feel connected for a moment to the heart of the senders and to the soul of this country.
It's always bittersweet. I wish we met under better circumstances, without such urgent needs, without such dire news and ugly history to discuss. It surely isn't easy to contemplate all the ways that we've been lied to by our supposed friends and betrayed by our employees and misled by all the Talking Heads.
