A Visit To The SCOTUS

Yesterday, I had the privilege to visit the Supreme Court of The United States as a guest of Chief Justice John Roberts. He’s the 17th Chief Justice of the United States and will likely, and hopefully be, the Chief Justice for the majority of my lifetime.

We had an opportunity to spend time with him in his chambers before and after the oral arguments. The two items on the docket were:


The oral arguments were undoubtedly interesting, dense in legalese and constitutional law, and dramatic in that you are sitting in the highest court in the land listening to arguments that could change history.

But the thing that left the biggest impression on me is this: it was a reminder that most people who serve our country deeply care about their work and their country.

Of course, some of our elected officials are misguided, but that’s what makes America, America. We get to support candidates we like and vote them into office.

America is not perfect. And if you spend any time on social media listening to pro-Hamas crowds screaming “death to America” you’d realize how imperfect we are.

We still have a lot of work to do, but there are indeed still great people trying to do the best they can. And these people put the country first and still fight, day in and day out, for our republic.

Thank you John, Jack and Sam for a great day.
