I love this man.

In extraordinary times, I send my gratitude to the powers that be for the extraordinary leaders we do have – those we have now, and those who are amongst us, who will emerge.

Who *choose*, again and again and again – and, make no mistake, this is a marathon not a sprint; we will need stamina and grit and the refusal to give up, like Federer, for what lies ahead – to place themselves in the line of fire, not just out of courage or principle but of love.

May we keep them safe from all the hatred that will pile their way.
