Yet he's adopted the same closed-door stance that has led so many Americans to mistrust their elected officials in the nation's capital.

Rather than fearing the dark, we can be the light that penetrates the darkness, driven by our sense of faith and optimism. We can remain open hearted in the face of turmoil.
