THREE TIMES AN AMERICAN PRESIDENT, AN UNAFRAID CITIZEN SPEAKS AND WARNS

THREE TIMES AN AMERICAN PRESIDENT, AN  UNAFRAID CITIZEN SPEAKS AND WARNS

To the world, you are America.  Charlton Heston



During this morning's second cup of coffee I watched a speech. 

Powerful!

As relevant, if not more so, today than when delivered, 19 years ago, by a master of the stage and spoken word. 

The gentleman opened by saying that among other distinguished roles he played an American President three times.

If not for timing (and interest), he could have played the role a fourth time; but for real.

Alas, a facsimile, of sort, is now in office. Thankfully. 

There's nothing more to say. 

Set aside all else and give undivided attention for the next 22 minutes and 16 seconds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yk2mXhnSxEg

I am not afraid. 

Be courageous. 

Stand your ground. 

Pass along.

Wow! I wonder how that 1999 speech would be received at those hallowed halls today?
