"New Mexico is full of natural beauty. Not just all our wonderful wildernesses and wide-open landscapes, but also the beautiful natures of the people and institutions that make New Mexico their home. On any given day you can meet people from all around the world in New Mexico. Some are just visiting. Some call it home. We all seem to get along and support each other. It seems like a common expectation in New Mexico that you can sit next to anyone in this state and, at least in the moment, have a really good interaction. I think we can unite New Mexico by helping everyone realize how similar and connected we all are. We can come together around common goals, make consensus, brainstorm, and create ways to help all of us have a better world."
