Something to be Proud of

If you’re like me, I just can’t stomach listening to the pious and deceptive speeches from the progressives in Washington and Harrisburg. Void of integrity and truth, the comments of these folks serve only to confuse and anger, and undercut what we really need in this country at this pivotal time in our history.
We yearn for statesmen but we get shameless self-servers. We long for leaders with character but we get double-speak, capitulation, appeasement and compromise of principle. We hope that we will hear some truth, see some grasp on wisdom and courage from our leaders. We want someone to be straight with us, and tell it like it really is, both the good and the bad.
We want to hear something to be proud of - something that inspires – something that gives hope. Well, last night, I did. I listened to a very short but substance-rich speech written and delivered by a 14 year old home-schooled boy for a class assignment. I share it with you and hope it helps to inspire you as it did me.
