I felt compelled to reach out to my ACN family today in hopes of sharing a very important message. There’s no denying we are in the midst of a political thunderstorm in the United States, and there’s no denying the storm surge is being felt around the world. Never has a U.S. Presidential election taken on such a global stage – and never has an election, at least not one in my generation, resulted in such passionate responses. Some of that passion is in support of the outcome and some is in protest. I know you are witnessing it in your own communities and social circles, and I’m sure you are seeing its impact throughout your ACN community as well. And regardless of what you personally believe, it’s this freedom to openly express our views without persecution that makes our country so great.
