Engaged and relentless hope

Jul 9, 2020

To the editor:
To stay engaged for 2 decades on all levels of town and school board issues is not accurately defined as attacks, disparagement or disgruntledness. It's called Hope. Engaged and relentless hope, against all the accumulated evidence that the realization of that hope will always be just outside of reach.
It's also called ‘integrity', where one's actions have no collateral self-benefit, and the right course could actually have a negative personal and professional result.
As Fitzgerald's Carraway says of Jay Gatsby, “He was the single most hopeful person I have ever met, and will likely ever meet again.”
