Letter: We will overcome this crisis

To the Editor:

America will triumph over Coronavirus. We will not be brought down by fear, stagnation, paranoia or government control. Hope, growth, inclusion and individual choice, in all realms of life, must be our credo.

Common sense and scientific advancements must guide our operational strategy and we will implement a solid plan to soar far beyond, and above, these strange and unsettling times. A new era, of freedom and love, is just within reach.

This is the United States of America. There is nothing we cannot accomplish if we embrace our country as a unified people. We must learn to compromise, for the sake of progress, but remain unwavering in our core principles as Americans.

We must come together, regardless of President or party, in order to enact a progressive and quintessentially American economic, social and legislative agenda. We will cure our most deadly diseases. We will claim victory over our enemies who wish to bring our nation, to it’s knees, through cowardly and sinister methods.

We must improve our standard of living and quality of life at-home. Through the sheer grit, of our people, as well as the determination and bipartisan efforts, of our government, we can strive to attain that “More Perfect Union”.

We will preserve and expand the liberties enshrined in our Constitution. It is the only way forward. I know we can make short-term sacrifices to broaden our long-term prospects. We have in the past and our new generation will rise to this challenge and conquer our seemingly intractable tribulations.

Despite these difficult times, I am always proud to be an American and grateful for my beautiful family, wonderful friends and life itself!

Henry J.H. Wilson
