"Sometimes in life, we're called to do great things but as a saint of our times has said: " Every day we are called to do small things with great love." The most important tasks of a democracy are done by everyone. I will live and lead by these principles: To advance my convictions with civility to pursue the public interest with courage to speak for greater justice and compassion to call for responsibility and try to live it as well. In all these ways, I will bring the values of our history to the care of our times."
George W. Bush On January 20, 2001, George W. Bush was inaugurated the 43rd president of the United States. In his inaugural address, he touched on the theme of compassion and emphasized the need for civility in modern society.
