What did you think of President Obama’s Inaugural Address?
How did it compare with the address he gave four years ago?
Did any part of it resonate with you?
Did it leave you mad, sad, glad or just plain indifferent?
One paragraph in particular got my attention:
You and I, as citizens, have the obligation to shape the debates of our time – not only with the votes we cast, but with the voices we lift in defense of our most ancient values and enduring ideals.
I doubt that I responded to that paragraph in the way he intended, since, to me at least, defending “our most ancient values and enduring ideals” means, among other things, standing with my Church against the HHS Mandate.
I think it’s critical for you to read these important speeches yourselves and then make up your own minds. What is your opinion of the speech President Obama gave today?
