When people are afraid of the future, we need leaders.

When their fear is palpable and they need confidence, we need leaders.

When they are suspicious of the motivations of others, we need leaders.

When there is a need for clear communication, we need leaders.

When so many are clutching to half-truths and strange conspiracy theories, we need leaders.

When there are tough decisions to be made that balance the economy and the needs of our most vulnerable, we need leaders.

When people don’t know what, or whom, to believe anymore, we need leaders.

When the world is ever-changing and we can’t be sure what tomorrow will bring, we need leaders.

Now, more than ever, we need leaders.

And that means you.
