“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. ” Inaugural Address by President Barack Obama, January 20, 2009
I am moved, I am proud, I am energized, I am tearful. Together we are embarking on a new journey that I believe will bring us peace, prosperity, and pride. God bless this Country, and God bless us everyone.
