Message William Rivers Pitt

Love your country.

Love your fellow man and woman.

Love the possibilities before us.

Love what we have done.

Love what we can do, together.

Light that light.

It is all too easy to despair of America in these dark days. But I am waiting for America, for all of us, to show me despair is not in us. I am waiting for someone to stomp on my porch, to bang on the door, to light a light, to tell me the walking is superb. I'm waiting for you, because you are the one you've been waiting for all this time.

Come on, America. Show me. You know I'm not too hard persuaded.
