Well written, genuine and insightful. An insight into the American pyche and hopes. Interesting to note, what from the outside seems the usual American self absorption, imagining the US President to be leader of the free world, by this otherwise insightful woman. I wonder if she feels Trump is the leader of the free world? Forgivable given her devotion to her husband though.
Also noted, the usual American sense of outrage at the gun deaths in the US but the apparent inability to note how aberrant this is relative to other so-called developed countries, and to use this in argument. US public figures shy from comparing their country unfavorably to others, even when logical.
Good luck to good people like her and her husband who hold hope for change in what seems from the outside to be a irredemiably failed social experiment.
