"Hope is a belief that my future can be better than my past, and I can play a significant role to make it better."

"Remain faithful to what you know."

"It’s not only okay to ask for help, it’s absolutely necessary to ask for help."

"I believe America is a shining example of the great good people can be together when principles and integrity guide our actions. And it can be a sobering example of the great harm people can do to each other when those principles are ignored, mocked, or disintegrated."

"The principle still remains, as does the choice."
