"We will not apologize for our way of life, nor will we waver in its defense, and for those who seek to advance their aims by inducing terror and slaughtering innocents, we say to you now that our spirit is stronger and cannot be broken; you cannot outlast us, and we will defeat you."
The piece by John Williams was pretty good too, the only part that was kind of WTF? was the poem. Yeah....pick up your pencils indeed. The parade was a bit long, but Jesse White and his tumblers were representing. It was also nice to see people all over the country and the world watching. Times Square, Kenya, Alabama. The balls were cool too, they even had a bunch in town, everyone was celebrating. All in all it was quite a historic day, a wonderful day for our country and really for the world. A lot of people think that we've turned a corner, that things will never be the same again. I hope they're right. I hope this is a milestone, a sign of things to come, hopefully a brighter future for all of us.
