“Have great hopes and dare to go all out for them. Have great dreams and dare to live them.

Have tremendous expectations and believe in them.”

Norman Vincent Peale

Good Afternoon,

Just a quick note to send you and yours our best wishes for a wonderful, safe, relaxing and Happy 4th of July weekend!

Take in the summer and enjoy much time with family and friends.

When I get a free moment, I am going to ponder how far we have come from a year ago.  What a trip is has been for sure.

I am going to remember how confusing and stressful those first few weeks of the pandemic were.  I am going think back, yes – but only for a brief moment.

I will do so to be excited about how far we have come – together.  I am going to feel pride in how all of us in this country worked together, through thick and thin, to overcome a compelling monster.

As I peer through the haze of the summer ahead and patiently await the next acceleration phase as summer comes to a close, these thoughts will march forth, overcoming all the senseless chatter we must endure:

No matter how hard you punch America, she comes back stronger than before.

No matter what negative force is unleashed upon us, we fight hard to recover and move to higher ground as a team.

No matter how stressful it seems at times – we never, ever – ever – give up.

Investors from the ages have learned in droves that there is one little, undeniable, unbendable, unbreakable secret about America and her future…

…never, ever bet against it.  

I wish we could all have a cold summer drink together – but know that we are with you in spirit as the dawn of a wonderful age of growth for this country – and all those in it – is upon us.  The summer chop will come – and then go.  Let it – and take it as a good thing.

 

Sure, it will demand work, patience and discipline.  You bet it will bring many storms to us as the expansion unfolds, and indeed,

more market setbacks than we can ponder at this time.

If we have learned anything at all about America’s last 245 years, it is this…

Our very best years are ahead of us.

We thank you sincerely for allowing us to serve and be a part of that wonderful pathway ahead – with you.

 

A Happy 4th of July Weekend to You and Yours

Until we see you again, may your journey be

grand and your legacy significant.
