I don’t think grit is valued as it once used to be, I think being clever and out foxing or out witting people is revered. Look at what is happening in our our nation’s capital. Somedays I feel like no one is remembering that this nation has been here for years. Not since the last election. People are more concerned with winning and crushing others than they are with actually doing the will of the people. with lying and dodging, than confessing and moving forward.
