  •  Frankly, I call it a call to arms for (9+ / 0-)

    American citizens to work for an America where everyone has an opportunity to contribute to this nation's greatness.  I think his speech summoned all of us to have courage to fight for what we deserve instead of letting our fates fall into the hands of the "have mores".  

    I agree with everyone else that he spoke eloquently and frankly about how he sees the country evolving if everyone of us joined in the fight to make it the place we want it to be.

    I said during the election that this would be a fight for the country's soul.  Today is the first day in that struggle against those who want to repress and steal the very lifeblood of this nation.

    That is why the POTUS' words took my breath away.
