The Gettysburg Address: Then and Now

http://youtu.be/TvfnPiJgzvI

In the United States of America, suffering is right next to unlimited joy. (IC) Poverty thrives behind wealth in every community and neighborhood as ignorance separates and then tears down the dignity of the troubled people. (CX) The prosperity enjoyed by people in America has previously been known throughout the amount of recorded history, yet the feeling of desperation is persuasive in our society. (CD-CX) As we fix the direction of our United States 150 years removed from the biggest struggle our nation has tolerated, the changing phase of our population reminds us of the connection that difficulty past to present and leads us forward into the future. (CD-CX)

The war that tore those bonds gave our nation an opportunity for rebirth in an image we admire and aspire to. (CX) We have been given a noble calling to become the better people we desire to be as we welcome the future. (CX) In this way, we have to decide with our actions what fate will fall out the future histories of our country. (CX) Within every American rests the spirit of our fore-bearers. (IC) The courage of conviction and the spirit of duty that shaped this great nation into a patch-work of equals laying down ready to be engaged for future challenges. (CX) It now suits all men to look into them and find the best examples of their nature to display for our posterity. (IC) The pace of modern life is cruel in its urgency and will not decrease. (IC) The future is unwritten for a reason. (IC) Now is the moment to become the people we want to be. (IC)
