While I do that, let me say:
- Happy Birthday to my sister, to Vince, and all those who share this day!
- Thanks to all those who have served and sacrificed in so many different ways to help my country do justice, seek peace, and be the best in can be.
- Thanks to all who serve today - in whatever ways.
- Thanks to all who love my country enough to remember its misdeeds and sins - and to help us make restitution and reparation so we can move into the future.
