“Sunday Night in America” host Trey Gowdy marked the first anniversary of his popular weekend show with a message of hope, encouraging viewers to take advantage of that which “is left of today and tomorrow” to create a future filled with “less regret and more happiness.”

TREY GOWDY: Looking back can be educational, therapeutic, and inspiring and make us grateful, sympathetic, and wise. We have been meeting here on Sunday nights for a year now. And a lot has happened in our country and around the world. The withdrawal of U.S. troops in Afghanistan, the death of American soldiers… we have borne witness to the war in Ukraine, the threat to democracy, and the mixed messages from some in this country on whether we should support democracy or brutal dictators. We’ve seen gas prices, inflation, and crime go up as confidence in the direction of our country goes down.Trey Gowdy marks first anniversary of 'Sunday Night in America' with powerful  message for viewers | Fox News

And yet, as we look back on the last decade and even the previous year, it does seem like things are different in America. We look back in part because it’s easier to see what has happened than predict what will happen. That is where the real uncertainty lies. It’s one of the great dualisms of life. We look back on the one thing we cannot change and spend less time on the one thing we can change, which is what is left of today and tomorrow.


So where do you want to be in a year personally? As a community? As a state? As a nation? Do you ever get tired of the constant negativity? Do you wonder where the stories on good cops and good prosecutors are? Do you wonder where the acts of kindness are? We see the crime. What about the goodness of America? Do you wonder why the loudest, most bombastic voices in politics are the ones who get all the attention?

We all look back; that is why hindsight is 2020. But it is the one thing we cannot change. How good is our vision for the next year, the next month, and the next day? How much time do we spend making sure that when we look back on tomorrow, it will be with joy, pride, and the full knowledge that we did our best to make sure it is a memory filled with less regret and more happiness? People ask me from time to time when things will change when you demand them. And when we bring about that change. Waiting on others is not proven profitable in many regards. For the next year, we should consider trying to be whatever change we desire. What is left of today and tomorrow seems like a good time and place to start.
