No better day than today to ponder the greatness of our nation, and yes it's weaknesses, and how we plan to deal with the challenges we face. The days ahead promise much challenge, and we should keep in mind the principles this country was founded on, and how important it is to defend them. We are a country of laws, not of men, of principles, not short-sighted pragmatism, and of individual liberties, including the right to believe, or not, as we see fit.
