February 19, 2004

"You have to do the best with what you are given. If we do the best we can do, then we'll be satisfied with our contributions. ... Every person makes a difference — for good or for ill."
— Carol Moseley Braun, ambassador, former U.S. Senator and recent candidate for the Democratic Party nomination for president, speaking at Penn State Altoona last night (Feb. 18). Mosley-Braun's speech detailed how people have helped this country achieve its potential, with some anonymous and some well-known. She drew much of her inspiration from Martin Luther King Jr., mentioning a number of his inspirational quotes throughout the lecture.
