A Bit of Perspective...

from another American president; President John Fitzgerald Kennedy:

"We must face the fact that the United States is neither omnipotent or omniscient — that we are only 6 percent of the world’s population; that we cannot impose our will upon the other 94 percent of mankind; that we cannot right every wrong or reverse each adversity; and therefore there cannot be an American solution to every world problem.”

May members of Congress, and the current president, keep these words in mind as we face the challenges that face us in 2007.
