President Obama showed again last night why he is in command, at the helm, and not someone else. He has the ability to inspire, to unite those who wish to be united, and to work for the common good instead of themselves.
It was a very apt speech for the worrying times we are in, and it depends on how people wish to interpret it. Those who have the country's interest at heart will be looking for ways to move forward from this while those who are partisan will have their own agenda.
Did you like it? Which bits, if any, inspired you the most?
There were tons in the speech worth re-quoting, but I believe the part that really stood out for me was this one:
"The defining issue of our time is how to keep that promise alive. No challenge is more urgent. No debate is more important. We can either settle for a country where a shrinking number of people do really well, while a growing number of Americans barely get by. Or we can restore an economy where everyone gets a fair shot, everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules. What's at stake are not Democratic values or Republican values, but American values. We have to reclaim them."
Amen to that!!
Over to you!
