"Though we've come a long way, there is much, much more to be done.

The deck is stacked against us. Our adversaries are well entrenched

and well financed and scared of any change in the status quo.

In the long run, we will prevail.

We hold the trump card, folks and when the dust clears,

and the dense morning fog burns off,

when we clear our wire of sappers, and the gunships go home,

by God, we'll still be there, because what we seek to do is right."
