"As we survey the landscape in our country today, we find much to deeply concern us, or even perhaps in many instances to infuriate us - in politics, in government, in the media, in academia, in business, even in the pulpits and the pews, but, in the midst of all of that, there is still much to love about America, and about Americans, if you really look for it. There are still many with a deep faith in God, who live out that faith in love and kindness shown to others. There are many who show by their actions that they care about the protection and the care of the weakest and most helpless among us. There are many who give, of themselves and their resources of time, energy and money, to help those who are less fortunate, or to help restore our country to its principled basis. For all their many flaws, many, if not most, Americans are still a pretty decent bunch. So don't give up hope. The last chapters of American history have not yet been written. And We the People, under God, still have the power to determine what those chapters are going to say about us."
