The U.S. elections process has come to a dramatic conclusion. We all anticipated a historic Presidential election, and indeed it was. The campaign was long, contentious and divisive. The election was a nail- biter, with the results unclear until the middle of the night. This morning I encountered many who stayed up through the night watching the results — and yet were here first-thing to join our post-election News You Can Use webcast. Our people were engaged in the election and deeply invested in its outcome.
Many reached out to me this morning with different points of view, some uncertain as to what the future means for America — its inclusion, its embrace of community, its pursuit of fairness and equality and its sense of opportunity. Others were more positive and believed we needed a vote for change. I must admit, I have had my own personal moments of uncertainty.
