"All those adults that you used to think were in charge and knew what they were doing? It turns out they don’t have all the answers. A lot of them aren’t even asking the right questions. So if the world’s going to get better, it’s going to be up to you.” - Barack Obama

Last week was National Police Week, and I want to show my high regard as well as to say thanks to our Darien Officers, with this reprint from our 2023 Darien Spring Newsletter. I can’t thank the men and women of the Darien Police Department enough for all they do for me and for the residents of the City of Darien.

America isn’t easy. America is advanced citizenship. You’ve got to want it bad ‘cause it’s gonna put up a fight. It's gonna say, You want free speech? Let’s see you acknowledge a man whose words make your blood boil, who’s standing center stage and advocating at the top of his lungs that which you would spend a lifetime opposing at the top of yours.” - Michael Douglas from “The American President.”
