It is the firefighter’s courage to storm a stairway filled with smoke, but also a parent’s willingness to nurture a child, that finally decides our fate.
(I’m getting eloquent on your ass, now)
Our challenges may be new, the instruments with which we meet them may be new,
(think of me as Indiana Jones in Raiders of the Lost Ark - making it up as I go along - because that’s what the situation - and the world - needs right now, and you know I’d look good in a fedora)
but those values upon which our success depends, honesty and hard work, courage and fair play, tolerance and curiosity, loyalty and patriotism — these things are old.
(they may have went out of fashion over the past eight years, but they’ll always remain stylish)
These things are true. They have been the quiet force of progress throughout our history.
(I know that this actually happened because I read books)
