To my Country (my fellow Americans)

and the World that’s been watching,

I have one thing to say—simply—

We’re going to be okay.

Let that soak in a bit. Now,

don’t forget to breathe.

That’s right, breathe. Simple.

Okay? A little better. Keep breathing.

Now let me tell you this…

WE the PEOPLE

will get through this—

WE have to set the example—and lead.

TRUST one another and

be good to each other.

When times are rough,

look within and reach out,

common sense and common decency,

love and peace,

will help smooth the way.

Don’t forget, united we stand.

Remember to breathe.

We’re going to be okay.
