iPhone : So the administration goes on the Sunday shows to say they are surrendering to the virus? First of all, appalling. And second, maybe not the best closing argument to a nation being overrun by said virus.

Twitter for iPad : I finished reading #WhatUnitesUs today. It reminded me of all of the ideals and dreams I had when I joined the Navy in 95. It’s hard to believe how much has changed...and how much hasn’t. Thank you, Dan Rather , for a beautiful tribute to our great nation.

Twitter for iPad : So many wonderful passages in #WhatUnitesUs ! Critical thinking, yes please. (BTW, I felt so happy in the Arts chapter to see Keith Haring mentioned-- as my teen just happened to be wearing my old Haring art t-shirt that day)

Twitter for iPad : In 2020, when democracies around the globe are dealing with all kinds of challenges, #WhatUnitesUs is a gentle reminder to every caring citizen, institution & leader on what it takes to build & sustain an inclusive-strong community, org, & nation. TY Dan Rather & Elliot K!

Twitter for iPad : Happy birthday to Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, the largely self-taught “Father of Microbiology,” who was born #OTD in 1632. He was the first to document observations of microscopic organisms, including bacteria, protists, & rotifers, which he called “animalcules.”🦠🔬🦠

iPhone : VP Pence “is considered a close contact with Mr. Short”, according to his press secretary.

But Pence—the head of the Coronavirus task force—will not quarantine for 14 days. Instead he will “maintain his schedule.”

iPhone : For some reason, my earlier post of my love for this beautiful book was flagged by the Twitter police. All I can say is how lovely I find the words of Dan Rather. I’m hopeful. I feel peace. Thank you sir for your comforting prose.

iPhone : "What Unites Us" by Dan Rather is an incredible read. I mean, really, really, good. I'm not done yet, but already I'm just blown away by how poignant, and necessary it is for the times we are living in.

iPhone : I need to purchase #WhatUnitesUs by Dan Rather because many reviews say that it gives hope. I can sure use some. We all can.

It’s not a genre I would normally read, but it’s never too late to explore new genres, either.

iPhone : Dan Rather I wanted to download a book for a road trip & found your new book in audio format from my library. It was the perfect companion to the open road! I wept several times from how touching it was. 💗 Thank you... as a nation, we needed this book. 🇺🇸 #WhatUnitesUs
