Jacob is amazingly optimistic about our country's future. Are we living in times of great division and hardship? Absolutely. Is there a lot to look forward to? Yes. He believes we need not look any further than our own community here in the Berkshires. Through the power of story and history, Jacob will paint a picture of progress. At the end of the day, while we may be divided by politics, race, gender, and wealth, we are all untied by one aspect: we are all American.
Jacob Robbins is a recent high school graduate and is a Berkshire County native.
