2022 has arrived and...

Well, this New Year, 2022, has arrived. The year we just escorted out was a considerable improvement over 2020 in many ways. Even so, it was still a tough year, truth be told.

None of us can say with any certainly what 2022 will be like. I’m expecting that it will bring our Country a lot of challenges and setbacks. And that some of them will be very daunting.

The fact that the first anniversary of the January 6th insurrection is less than a week away looms large for me. And for millions of other democracy-loving Americans.

While I quite frankly don’t see a lot of reason for optimism, I’m certain of this: 2022 will be a better year if we can recover a sense of community, of being in this together.

Most of the signs are not pointing in that hoped-for direction as I write these words this morning. If we find a way to begin to heal our differences and work together to solve our corporate problems, we will all be the better for it.

I'm hoping that we will. If we fail in that task, this nascent year may be a dark one, indeed.
