Favorite part on President Barack Obama’s inaugural speech

I glued myself to early morning television to see the inauguration.

Here’s my most favorite part, what’s yours?

“Our challenges may be new. The instruments with which we meet them may be new. But those values upon which our success depends — hard work and honesty, courage and fair play, tolerance and curiosity, loyalty and patriotism — these things are old. These things are true.

What is required of us now is a new era of responsibility — a recognition, on the part of every American, that we have duties to ourselves, our nation, and the world, duties that we do not grudgingly accept but rather seize gladly, firm in the knowledge that there is nothing so satisfying to the spirit, so defining of our character, than giving our all to a difficult task. “

    Hi Arvin,

    I also liked that part. When he was saying that line GMA, and only GMA, really came to mind. Wew.

    I dream of a leader who cannot only inspire us Filipinos in words but also in deeds.

    There’s a lot of work to be done. Wew.
