President Ford

In light of the recent passing of President Gerald Ford, I thought it might be useful to sit and reflect on his legacy and what it teaches us. Please feel free to add your thoughts on the matter.

For me, President Ford exemplified the Ambassador, especially after his presidency. His desire and action to serve others was clear and should be an example to anyone. Whats more, his intentional nature of working across the aisle, namely his great friendship with President Jimmy Carter (one of my personal role models), showed what could be done when differences were put aside and the greater good was put to the front. I pray that I will have the fortitude and strength to put party pressures aside when they serve no purpose but to divide. Indeed, President Ford and I were elected to do the people's work and that's just what he did and that's what I plan to do.
