Dig my satellite uplink
At this very moment, I'm camping out at the Kahana Valley State Park on the North Shore of the island of Oahu. Most of 'Jurassic Park was filmed in and around here, just to give you an idea how far out there this place is. Since I have my Cingular GSM satellite uplink hooked into the old laptop, and I got some juice left in the batteries, I thought I would use my satellite uplink to let you see exactly what I am looking at, right now. That's my bunk for the night in the first couple of pictures. The last picture is one I took earlier today from a mountain vista on a serious hike into the jungle behind me.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
