The Eclipse is doing what no politician, political party, media, or leadership has been able to do – it’s bringing people together. It’s crossing blue states and red states with no partiality. Blue collar towns and white collar cities are being bathed in its light with equal abandon. All of the divisions, the anger, the strongest of opinions are being rendered meaningless as we look up in awe at something far greater than ourselves.

I travel around the world every year, working with billionaires and people who are way beyond broke. I’ve learned people all want the same thing; for their children to be healthy and their children to have a good life. Pretty simple – like the moon passing between the sun and the earth. Not too complicated. And yet enough to make us stop, even for a second, and remember there’s something far greater than ourselves going on here.
