Despair Not, Oh Ye People!

In these worrisome times people often wonder if those today are worthy to walk in the shadows of our Ancestors. Who today can claim to rise up and rightfully wrap them selves in the mantle of Aristotle, Galileo, da Vinci, Luther, Thomas Paine, Jefferson?

Yes, I too have often felt your worry, your concern that perhaps We as a People have grown too soft, that perhaps we have lost that Spark, that inner fire of inspiration that causes in these most desperate of moments the very creme of human ability and achievement to rise Phoenix-like from the ashes of our deepest despair.

My friends, Rejoice!

We are saved.
