Actually, I am back at the hotel, sipping Passion Fruit juice after two days of spectacular back country backpacking and an afternoon of lagoon snorkling. For some reason the bandwidth is crummy on my GSM, the best I am getting are dialup speeds, so I have been unable to upload pics. I'll be switching over to the Honolulu side of the island tomorrow, where I should be able to grab some bandwidth so I can upload some fantasitc pictures of my trek into some serious jungle.
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
