Actually, I am not a Pollyanna. I am not blind to flaws, but I know that we all have them, and I love people anyway. How is that radical? I’m always told it is. Or I’m told that it’s odd. Well, I’ll be odd. I love the effort people make, and I applaud what they’ve done. It doesn’t mean I don’t see flaws, but people who concentrate on flaws don’t help things. I’m here to help things.
