Excerpted FROM : "Gore shows America way to healing" By Fred DuVal Dec. 18, 2000 ......... Our shared New Year's resolution might be that, after this trauma, all Americans should come together on common ground. They should resolve to tackle, at last, the many challenges that have been ignored amid Washington's partisan gridlock: reforming education, providing drug coverage for seniors, reforming our health-care system, shoring up Social Security and Medicare, enacting campaign finance reform and expanding economic opportunity for every American. That is the pledge George Bush made in his thoughtful answer to Gore's concession speech. We should accept it in good faith, with high hopes and open minds. And we should meet his pledge with our own. In this charitable spirit - appropriately, coming at the holiday season - every American, and especially every devoted Democrat, should follow Al Gore's lead and offer our support for our new president-elect. The extraordinary events of the past five weeks have mitigated his legitimacy. Americans can choose to restore it - and we should. And, together - Democrats, Republicans and Independents alike - we can conclude this difficult chapter of our history by imbuing renewed relevance to the familiar words, "One nation, under God, indivisible." Fred DuVal is an Arizonan who recently served as an assistant to President Clinton and formerly served as a top aide to Arizona Gov. Bruce Babbitt. He is currently a senior managing director of Hill and Knowlton, a global public relations company. http://www.arizonarepublic.com/opinions/articles/1218DuVal18.html "Like Gore, many have felt agony of defeat Losers often turn setbacks into opportunities" By Lisa Anderson and Ray Long Tribune Staff Writers December 17, 2000 http://chicagotribune.com/news/metro/chicago/ws/item/0,1308,46649-46819-48774,00.html
It is no use saying 'we are doing our best.'
You have got to succeed in doing what is necessary
Unity to be real must stand the severest strain without breaking.
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world. Speak or act with a pure mind And happiness will follow you As your shadow, unshakable.- The Dhammapada
