the meaning of freedom

Bill Moyers' speech to West Point cadets. Here are the lessons he teaches: No death in Iraq is minute. Our leaders have not listened to the founders. The lessons of Vietnam have been forgotten. "Blind faith in bad leadership is not patriotism." "The meaning of freedom begins with the still, small voice of conscience, when each of us decides what we will live, or die, for."

How I wish we had leaders in our country who understand history, faith, and poetry like Mr. Moyers does.
