“Sunday Night in America” host Trey Gowdy marked the year of his popular weekend show with a message of hope, encouraging viewers to take advantage of what’s “left of today and tomorrow” to create a future filled with “less regret and more happiness”.
TREY GOWDY: Looking back can be educational, therapeutic, inspiring and can make us grateful, compassionate and wise. We’ve been meeting here on Sunday nights for a year now. And a lot has happened in our country and in the world. The the withdrawal of American troops to Afghanistanthe death of American soldiers … we witnessed war in Ukraine, a threat to democracy, the mixed messages of some in this country about whether we should support democracy or brutal dictators. we saw gas prices, inflationcrime grows as confidence in the direction of our country declines.
Yet, when we look back at the last decade, and even the last year, things seem to be different in America. We look back in part because it’s easier to see what happened than to predict what will happen. Therein lies the real uncertainty. It is one of the great dualisms of life. We look back at one thing we can’t change and spend less time on one thing we can change, and that’s what’s left of today and tomorrow.
So where do you want to be in a year in person? As a community? As a state? As a nation? Do you ever get tired of constant negativity? Wondering where the stories of good cops and good prosecutors are? Wondering where the acts of kindness are? We see a crime, what about the goodness of America? Wondering why the loudest is the most bombastic voices in politics are they the ones that attract all the attention?
We all look back, that’s why we say retrospective is 2020. But that’s the only thing we can’t change. How good is our vision next year, next month, next day? How much time do we spend so that, when we look back on tomorrow, it will be with joy, pride and full knowledge that we have done our best to make it a memory filled with less regret and more happiness? People ask me from time to time when things will change? When you require it. And when we make that change. Waiting for others has not been proven cost-effective in many respects. For the next year, we should think about trying to be the change we want. What’s left of today and tomorrow seems like a really good time and place to start.
