Governor of NY presents... Our Next Challenge

With a daughter and husband and many friends living in NY State it is no wonder that I listen to their Governor Andrew Cuomo as often as I can. His daily press briefings leave nothing to the imagination. He tells us (in his typical blunt NY accent) exactly what it's like to be our countries hot spot in the war against the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Governor gives us statistics and facts that can be verified. He begs for help and is not shy to bring it up time and again when it is not given. He stays away from Politics and doesn't play games … being quick to praise where it is warranted and just as quick to shine the highlight on those actions that are suspect.

In today's briefing he asked that we envision how our county will be after the pandemic has run it's course and then he threw out this challenge ... he asked us to take the time we have now to think about how we will approach this new world? He said that we'll need an organizational transformation and totally different mindset and that it will be up to all of us to do it right. I, for one, will be doing a lot of thinking along these lines and maybe, just maybe, between us all we can make it a change for the better.

That man would make a good president.

I do hope we emerge in a better state of mind and that the world will be a better place. However, I have some doubts about whether everyone will change their attitudes, actions, etc.

Some politicians are worth listening to in these trying times. Ours seem to have put their differences aside for the most part.

I do wish he were in charge right now. He has a realistic head on his shoulders.

I've appreciated what he's had to say, too. How we develop as a nation after this experience is concerning to me -- what everyone will learn and be willing to change or will many persist in wanting to return to a past that can only keep spiraling us downward?
