Inaugural Hat Tip to Parents

From the Inaugural Address of America's 44th president, Barack Obama:
For as much as government can do and must do, it is ultimately the faith and determination of the American people upon which this nation relies. It is the kindness to take in a stranger when the levees break, the selflessness of workers who would rather cut their hours than see a friend lose their job which sees us through our darkest hours. It is the firefighter's courage to storm a stairway filled with smoke, but also a parent's willingness to nurture a child, that finally decides our fate.
So, thank you to all you parents, whose willingness to nurture your children has done and will do so much.
