Star That Guides Us Still

We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths -- that all of us are created equal -- is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls and Selma and Stonewall; just as it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung, who left footprints along this great Mall, to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk alone; to hear a King proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every soul on Earth.

-- Barack Hussein Obama II (4 August 1961-), 44th President of the United States, Second Inaugural Address, Washington D.C. (21 January 2013)
