Obama’s Inaugural Ceremony…

AUTHOR’S NOTE:

“Our worst fear is not that  we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I not to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented & famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God; your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to manifest the glory of God within us. It is not just in some of us, it is in everyone & as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

~ Nelson Mandela.

Who are we, indeed, not to achieve greatness?
