My claim is not hyperbolic, but prescient.  The people of the United States, once told stories of their greatness and of the deeds of their greatest generation, have now begun the journey towards an excellence required to overcome and undo the damage done by generations of men consumed by an autocratic ideal.  So massively deluded were these men by the fantasies of kingdoms made, lost and to come, that they were willing to sacrifice the blood of innocent men, women and children on the altar of their grandiosity.  One day we will know them all not just by their deeds, but by their names and the names of their children.

The Great Undoing of the sin that surfaced for all to see in November of 1963 and which had started many, many years earlier has now begun.  We have used absolutely every tool granted to us from a benevolent higher power for our own betterment and for a higher purpose we only faintly believed in.  Even as our faith flickered dimly, we marshaled ourselves one last time, we pushed ourselves forward, and we have once again evolved and been born again anew.

Greatness comes to all men and women from every corner of the Earth and at every station; sadly, it does not often visit the houses of those who would lead us.

We live in a time when one’s mistakes, and one’s virtues, are instantly made visible to every waking soul with and without our best interests at heart.  At no time in our history has such a campaign, such a wedding feast, been laid at our feet by a man so historically unlikely to have achieved our collective trust.

And never before has a nation and its people been more hungry and more ready to receive the largesse of a loving Creator.

There is much left for us to do – our challenges and our work lay before us.  But today, let us break bread and give thanks.  Our gratitude for the people of every color, of every stripe, who have served our country and our Dream must now be acknowledged for the humility and the fortitude they have so often demonstrated and have so tirelessly waited for this moment to achieve.

May our God, and your Gods, bless America.
