“In Our Time”

President Obama delivered his first address to a joint session of Congress tonight. It was a speech for our times.

There is one sentence from this speech that may not get much press coverage. But it literally means the world to me, and I suspect to millions around the world. So, I want to highlight it here.

President Obama said:

It will launch a new effort to conquer a disease that has touched the life of nearly every American – including me – by seeking a cure for cancer in our time.

He added the words “including me” when he delivered it though it was not in the speech as it was prepared for delivery.

A cure – in our time.

    My concern is the flagrant use of US funds to rebuild the Gaza. We have enough problems here without continuing to give our money to the rest of the world. If you want to call this isolationist, so be it. It is time for the United States to deal with issues at home and let some other countries care for the world.
