Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
We must all, each and every American, thank CreateSpace for assembling this great collection of historic American essays and speeches, above all this charter, this social contract, our President has made with our people.

President Barack Hussein Obama pledges: "We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things. The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea, passed on from generation to generation: the God-given promise that all are equal, all are free and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness."

Thusly does our President set the difficult path we must walk in order to survive and to serve.

In this volume we may study carefully the brilliant words of our President, words each true American takes to heart, simple words from a brilliant leader, words filled with the audacity of hope in these troubled times. We find cornerstone phrases from past American leaders, in particular the Gettysburg Address, an earnest and simple cry for peace spoken by President Abraham Lincoln in the very heart of horrible war. We find here as well President Lincoln's First Inaugural Addresses of March 4, 1861.

Above all we may here once more, and with renewed urgency, meditate the great invocation prayed by the Reverend Rick Warren at the outset of this new day, a clarion call for all Americans to come together as one to renew our nation in peace and in justice for all.

We are fortunate therefore to find gathered under one cover these quintessentially American addresses, a collection which must grace each American hearth for daily reflection in these coming days.
