Words of Hope

Or perhaps irony. We shall see, as actions speak louder than words.

From President Obama's inaugural address:

"We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things. The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea, passed on from generation to generation: the God-given promise that all are equal, all are free, and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness."

This line was met with applause. Just who does Mr. Obama mean by "all"? So far it doesn't look like he means humans in the womb, no matter how close they are to being born. But we can always hope. And pray.
