Ultimately, the American people will have to save the day. They’ll have to leave the beaches and take care of their neighbors and friends. They’ll innovate and find cures. They’ll retool their manufacturing and find ways to make medicine in America again. After a week away, observing a cross section of our citizens, traveling through airports, talking to business owners and their employees, seeing restaurant owners convey their care, watching people blissfully do disease-spreading activities, and observing the inexplicable mix of human fallibility and greatness, I come back to the mainland hopeful. Americans want to do the right thing even when they fall short. May it be enough.
