We live in a time of chaos: The COVID-10 pandemic; a President without moral compass; a country divided by hate and divisiveness; and a sense of loss of control of our lives, our country and our future.
Despite 24 hour coverage in the news and media, there are times when synthesizing an issue allows for greater understanding.
This will be my bully pulpit* to stimulate thinking and action.
GC. 21 July 2020
A bully pulpit is a conspicuous position that provides an opportunity to speak out and be listened to. This term was coined by United States President Theodore Roosevelt, who referred to his office as a "bully pulpit", by which he meant a terrific platform from which to advocate an agenda. Roosevelt used the word bully as an adjective meaning "superb" or "wonderful", a more common usage at that time.
