To the Editor:

Yes, we grieve.

Yes, we mourn.

Yes, our world has changed (it will be better if we allow it).

Yes, we are in for a challenge.

With all respect to our heroes and their families, it's time to get back to work. It's what many of us need to heal and recover while showing the world how great it is to be an American.

It's time to be positive and help ourselves, our families and our industry.

During a recent training meeting I was asked when business will come back. My response: "When we want it to."

While we have been damaged, our spirit has grown. The great people of this nation must rally around all the great things we have and recommit to ourselves, our families and our industry.

When we do that, we will get back to business and grow stronger.

We live in the greatest nation in the world.

Automotive News has been a great partner to our industry. Now, our industry needs you.

We need you to search for the positive stories that can help our industry.

It is easy to find the negative. I challenge everyone at Automotive News along with everyone in our industry to look for and report the positives.

Only then we will recover and


God Bless America.
