In 1960, as he accepted the Democratic nomination for the presidency, John F. Kennedy said, "We are not here to curse the darkness, but to light a candle that can guide us through the darkness to a safe and sane future." The passing of almost 60 years has not dimmed the truth of these words, which if anything are even more relevant in today's tumultuous times than they were then.
In a recent interview, the brilliant English actress Diana Rigg said, "Maybe at this stage in my career, it's from the younger generation that I have the most to learn." Speaking as a member of an industry in which the younger generation has a historic level of representation, I couldn't agree more with the woman they know as Game of Thrones' Oleanna Tyrell. (To me, though, she will always be Emma Peel. If you're over 40 you'll get the reference.)
