What a day!

What a day in our nation’s history! I am delighted!

Obama’s speech yesterday has been reported to be good, but not great. Nevertheless, the phrases which resonated with me are:

  • “… we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord.”
  • “The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works …”
  • “As for our common defense, we reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals.”
  • “… our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please.”
