WHAT’S THE BEST PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT WHILE WE’RE ALL WATCHING  THE CLINTON-TRUMP DEBATE ?

The New York Times, September 28, 2016

Analysts calculate that more than one-fourth of the entire U.S. population watched the first presidential debate this week. Really? Nearly 84 million people doing something together? Of course we weren’t all rooting for the same candidate, or even really seeing the same thing. Some see an irresponsible carrot-haired bully whenever Trump talks; others see a strong leader. Still, it was a unique opportunity, before the closing timer buzzed and we each drifted away to our favorite social media. (In a way, I wish public service announcements were allowed during the event.)  So what would be the one overarching message I would want to deliver, for us to unite around, in that final nanosecond together? We must save our planet; climate change is real. Open our eyes and hearts to the world, rather than building build walls. “Think long-term. Invest in the future.” There’s so much to say. How about this: We’re all in this together. And I don’t just mean in this audience for this reality TV show.
