HW 1/20

"History, despite its wrenching pain
Cannot be unlived, but if faced
With courage, need not be lived again." Maya Angelou

"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." Barack Obama
