We’ve been through a lot together, but we’ve known tough times before. What carries us through, and helps us endure? What are the qualities, so essential to us, in the leaders who occupy the office of President?

We have a long way to go, but with every new beginning, every homecoming, every step forward, we remember who we are. “What’s really allowing this economy to heal,” President Obama reminds us, “is the resilience and strength and the character of the American people. They don’t quit, they don’t give up. Partly because of family, partly because of a sense of community; patriotism and pride in this nation. They keep going. That’s the incredible gift the American people keep gibing back to me in this job” the President said.

We are stronger together. We are better together. Forward.
