Thanks Texasredtop for posting the Inaugual Speech. I was there in DC - on Capitol Hill- that day and the speech sent shivers up my spine (and no...it was not the bone chilling cold dampness that caused the shivers).
As a Canadian who could not even sing the first two lines of the American Anthem, I sang it along with the rest of the audience that day. The speech made me proud to have worked on his campaign.
My favourite line is "I ask you to be citizens. Citizens, not spectators. Citizens, not subjects. Responsible citizens, building communities of service and a nation of character."
Since 1999, I have worked in over 9 states for US campaigns and I can not even vote there. One vote can make a difference (so can one chad!!). I, personally, feel that President Bush makes us remember that. And that is Priceless!
