    Well, it all sounds very good to me. However, his last quote of TJ is so politically incorrect that I bet most of his audience (and a lot of folks who have heard or read the speech since it was given ) immediately dismissed it.

    This board would be so much better if folks could actually not make political differences their personal differences....and in truth there are some here who try. I am grateful for that and it is one of the reasons that I think this forum is such a good one.

    Very thought invoking. I love hearing speeches or stories that leave you reflecting or looking at your life with a different edge. Excellent post.
