as i watched President Obama’s speech last night, i felt him talking directly to me as he said these lines:
America. In the face of our common dangers, in this winter of our hardship, let us remember these timeless words. With hope and virtue, let us brave once more the icy currents, and endure what storms may come. Let it be said by our children’s children that when we were tested, we refused to let this journey end, that we did not turn back, nor did we falter; and with eyes fixed on the horizon and God’s grace upon us, we carried forth that great gift of freedom and delivered it safely to future generations.
my problems might be smaller compared to the problems that President Obama has to face, but the message remains the same: to face fear with hope, to go back to the basics, and remember that all you do right now will not be done in vain.
