Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World outlines a world where individual thought and creativity are dead. In the opening chapters, ‘deltas’ or lower castes were shocked every time they saw a book or a flower. In Huxley’s novel, individuals were subject to a drug induced ‘happiness’ and indoctrinated to hate morality instead of experiencing freedom.

Grit, as defined by Webster’s Dictionary, is “firmness of mind or spirit :unyielding courage in the face of hardship or danger.” Essentially, grit is a will to continue on against all odds.

At the 108th Annual Congressional Baseball Game, something happened that we normally don’t see in Washington. We saw smiles, prayers, and tears from Democrats and Republicans, united in solidarity with the values of our nation. A tear-jerking scene opened the game as David Bailey, one of the Capitol Police officers injured in the assault threw the first pitch. Bailey approached the mound with crutches and all, a living example that America doesn’t quit, and we don’t back down. This game gave people a spark of hope, but that spark is already dwindling.

On Thursday, Former FBI director James Comey testified before a Senate Intelligence committee. While his testimony was not as shocking as some had expected, Comey did presumptively say that President Donald Trump lied. He didn’t go so far as to suggest obstruction of justice charges. However, he did deal a strong blow to the image of the White House with his statements. A G-Man Betrayed The hearing went on for approximately 3 hours, and overall, the most damaging points came from the opening remarks.
