"A New Birth of Freedom"

Teddy Roosevelt once said, "The things that will destroy America are prosperity at any price, peace at any price, safety first instead of duty first, the love of soft living and the get rich quick theory of life."

From Semisonic and the song, “Closing Time”: “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” We can do more than just hope for a better America. We can all do our part, how ever small, to make a change in our country and in our lives. It not only takes a village, it takes a whole society to get us back on track and today is the day to start anew with our President Barack Obama's Inaugural theme The New Birth of Freedom.

"Let the watchwords of all our people be the old familiar watchwords of honesty, decency, fair-dealing, and commonsense."....."We must treat each man on his worth and merits as a man. We must see that each is given a square deal, because he is entitled to no more and should receive no less."...."The welfare of each of us is dependent fundamentally upon the welfare of all of us." Teddy Roosevelt, September 7, 1903.
