A new baby; a new pledge

So here’s my daughter, Eloise. Born on Friday. Her older brothers and sister are ecstatic to have her home.

For me, the decision to bring yet another child into this world involves two principles. First, that the world that she enters will be a good one, with good people doing good things. Second, that I personally have a responsibility to make the world that way.

Eloise and my other children aren’t the only reason that I’m running. But I truly believe that if I want things to be better for them, then I have a personal duty to use whatever skills I have in the way that maximize their impact.

Let’s make sure that all kids in the post-COVID world end up better than the pre-COVID one, and let’s use our schools to help get them there.
