Recover from this? Not easily. Our reputation is justifiably tarnished. The road back will be
hard, even arduous. And it is up to us, the People, to do it. We have to put our shoulders to the wheel. It’s on us. Never trust a politician, even ones you like. They always have to know we’re there. Twenty-four hours a day. This is supposed to be a democratic republic. We have to act like it. That is the road back. I hope we make it.
