The Honor Is To Serve…

The title of this post is taken from the famous “I Have A Dream” speech given by Reverend King at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.  If you haven’t read it lately, I highly recommend you take a few minutes to read the entire thing.  I consider it to be one of the great speeches of the English language.
There is ALWAYS a fierce urgency of NOW — for each of us.  Life is all about the now.

[Two thoughts on today’s Inaugural celebrations…]
This not a day of triumph; it is a day of dedication.  Here muster not the forces of party, but the forces of Humanity…  I summon all honest men, all patriotic, all forward-looking men to my side.  God helping me, I will not fail them, if they will but counsel and sustain me!
    —    Woodrow Wilson
From his 1st Inaugural Address
Democracy is the only system that persists in asking the powers that be whether they are the powers that ought to be.
    —    Sydney J. Harris
[To the former:  I stand at your side, Mr. President.  To the latter:  ask me again in Nov. 2014 and then again about a year after that…  Until then, God Bless you, Mr. President and God Bless the United States of America!    —    kmab]
