Ingress Film with Rachel Noll James
Today we welcome Rachel Noll James to discuss her latest film project INGRESS. Biography Rachel is an award winning screenwriter, actor and filmmaker with a focus on female driven films and bringing the female gaze to stories and genres traditionally dominated by a male perspective. Rachel grew up in Santa Fe, NM. She moved to Los Angeles to attend Occidental College, and went on to study and work in the LA area for over a decade. Rachel spent her first few years in LA working solely as an actor before she found herself getting increasingly restless waiting for other people to offer her work. So she started creating her own. Rachel’s first feature was ‘Don’t Pass Me By,’ a film she wrote, produced, and starred in alongside Hollywood veterans Keith David, C. Thomas Howell and Sean Stone. Rachel won Best Feature Writer at the LA Femme Festival for the script, and the film was released worldwide in February of 2014. Soon after, Rachel produced and co-wrote the feature film ‘The Storyteller’ which won the Silver Prize in the Family Film category in the PAGE International Screenwriting Awards and was released on Hallmark Movies Now after winning multiple awards in the festival circuit. Additional credits include the multiple award-winning short film ‘Paramnesia’ that was released as part of acclaimed horror collective Fun Size Horror Volume 1, the short film ‘Half Light’ that landed Rachel as a quarter finalist in the NextTV directing talent search and was released exclusively through Seed&Spark, and the short ‘Follow The River’ that won Rachel honorable mention in the Port Orchard Film Festival. Rachel is currently in post-production for her next feature film, ‘Ingress’ which Rachel wrote and directed.  Slated for completion in 2022. Rachel is a member of Northwest Film Forum, Women in Film Seattle and a co-founder of the female-focused production company Emergence Films.

Bethany Lutheran Church affordable housing project with Kent Scott and Joe McMillan
Today we welcome: Kent Scott & Joe McMillan We discuss the current proposal from Bethany Lutheran Church to give land for the purpose of providing affordable housing to the city of Bainbridge Island. Here is a sample of a letter addressed to the City of Bainbridge Island & the Planning Commission, as well as others in our community:         With respect to the Bethany Lutheran proposal and the draft ordinance that we understand you will be presenting to the City Council, we think it important to make a few observations that we hope will inform your approach and your presentation at the City Council meeting on July 26:   First, the Council should be informed that COBI is already in compliance with the Washington State statute that seems to have prompted the recent activity around the Bethany Lutheran proposal and the perceived need for a new city ordinance.  The key language from the Washington statute, RCW 36.70A.545, purporting to impose an obligation on cities and counties is as follows:   Increased density bonus for affordable housing located on property owned by a religious organization. (1) Any city or county fully planning under this chapter [the GMA] must allow an increased density bonus consistent with local needs for any affordable housing development of any single-family or multifamily residence located on real property owned or controlled by a religious organization . . . .   COBI already has such an ordinance.  Specifically, BIMC 18.21.030 (Optional residential density bonus for affordable housing) provides up to a 50% density bonus for both rental and “for-purchase” affordable housing, “when each of the additional units is provided for households whose incomes are at or below low income.”  Thus, the Council should not be led to believe that it must enact a new ordinance in order to satisfy a new statutory requirement.  That conclusion is bolstered by the language in RCW 36.70A.545 that any action by the city or county be “consistent with local needs,” which leaves a significant measure of discretion to local authorities, as “local needs” is undefined by the statute.  In our case, we do not believe “local needs” require the construction of a high-density housing development in an R-0.4 zone that is part of the Conservation Area under our current Comprehensive Plan.  Moreover, we understand that Bainbridge is on track to accommodate the population growth that it is required to plan for under the Growth Management Act (“GMA”), based on its existing zoning scheme.  In other words, no up-zoning of the sort required by the Bethany Lutheran proposal is needed to fulfill our obligations under the GMA.   In addition, our existing density bonus provision (BIMC 18.21.030) has the significant advantage of being neutral with respect to the secular vs. non-secular character of the property owner.  Thus, it avoids the serious Establishment Clause issues associated with any new ordinance based on RCW 36.70A.545.  As you may know, COBI has already received several letters from a national non-profit organization, Americans United for Separation of Church and State (“AU”), warning that implementation of RCW 36.70A.545 would violate the First Amendment of the US Constitution and may trigger litigation.  We hope that COBI will act prudently to avoid the needless and wasteful expense associated with such a challenge.  The April 28, 2022, letter from AU to COBI is attached for your reference.  We encourage you to consult with the City Attorney regarding that issue before presenting any draft ordinance based on RCW 36.70A.545 to the City Council. In discussions at the Planning Commission and the City Council earlier this year regarding a possible density bonus for the Bethany Lutheran property, one of the first steps in assessing what would be appropriate has been to determine what the existing permissible Density for the property is under the current Code.  In this regard, we think there have been some positions advanced that are inaccurate, e.g., the claim advanced by the current Chair of the Planning Commission (at the 6/7/22 Study Session of the City Council) that the Code currently permits a Density of 12 residences on the 8.43 acres at issue (which are split into two separate parcels).  That calculation of 12 residences is predicated on what we believe are at least two separate errors in interpreting the Code.  First, it ignores the fact that the north parcel (comprising slightly more than half of the total 8.43 acres owned by Bethany Lutheran) is already fully developed, containing a large church building, a meeting hall, and an extensive parking lot (all built pursuant to a conditional use permit for this R-0.4 zoned lot).  Ms. Sutton has referred to the definition section of BIMC 18.12.050 (which, among other terms, provides a general definition of “Density”) to conclude that all that development should be ignored in determining the density that is permitted, as if the entire 8.43 acres was completely undeveloped.  She has further analogized the situation to the “Mixed Use” zones identified in BIMC Title 18 (the Code’s zoning provisions), saying that in those mixed commercial/residential areas, we disregard the commercial space in assessing the number of residences permitted.  We believe that applying that approach drawn from the Mixed Use zones (all of which are relatively high-density areas, e.g., Winslow) to an R-0.4 residential zone in the Island’s Conservation Area, is a serious mistake, as it treats zones with markedly different purposes as though they were the same.  The express language of the Code makes clear that an R-0.4 zone has an open, natural character that must be protected, with entirely different purposes than those served by Mixed Use zones.  According to the Code, the purpose of residential zones, and R-0.4 zones in particular, is as follows (emphasis added): 18.06.020 Purpose of individual residential districts. The purpose of the residential districts is to provide for housing at various densities while preserving the unique character of the island, promoting sustainable development, and minimizing negative impacts of new residential development on surrounding areas. A. Residential 0.4 (R-0.4). The purpose of the R-0.4 zone is to provide low-density housing in an environment with special Island character consistent with other land uses, such as agriculture and forestry, and the preservation of natural systems and open space. The low density of housing does not require the full range of urban services and facilities. By contrast, the purposes of the various Mixed Use zones are as follows: 18.06.030 Mixed Use Town Center zone. A. Purpose. The purpose of the Mixed Use Town Center zone is to implement the Mixed Use Town Center sections of the comprehensive plan. The Mixed Use Town Center should strengthen the vitality of downtown Winslow as a place for people to live, shop and work, to provide a strong residential component, and to encourage a lively community during both the day and night. The Mixed Use Town Center zone includes five overlay districts that allow diverse types of housing, shopping, civic facilities, recreation and employment. The mix of land uses promotes a pedestrian atmosphere, enhances the viability of the town center, and allows development in a manner that is harmonious with the scale of the town center. 18.06.040 High School Road zone I and II districts. A. Purpose. The purpose of the High School Road I and II zones is to provide commercial uses that complement downtown Winslow and benefit from automobile access near the highway, while creating a pedestrian-friendly retail area. A variety of commercial uses are allowed that offer goods and services for the convenience of Island residents and that may have an auto orientation and a drive-through facility. 18.06.050 Neighborhood center A. Purpose. The purpose of the neighborhood center is to provide a mix of neighborhood-scale residential, commercial, and service activity that is compatible with the scale, character, and intensity of the surrounding residential neighborhood . . . . Under the Code, Mixed Use commercial/residential zones are not allowed in R-0.4 zones and are restricted to higher density areas – R-8, R-14, and the various commercial districts that the Code identifies.  See BIMC Table 18.09.020, identifying permitted uses in the various zoning districts. Thus, a density determination that ignores the very substantial pre-existing development of the north parcel of the Bethany Lutheran property based on an analogy to Mixed Use areas is a flawed interpretation of how the Code should be applied.  This is further evident when one considers that the Code itself directs that it be interpreted to apply the most restrictive requirements in making land use decisions: 18.03.070 Minimum requirements. In their interpretation and application, the provisions of this code shall be held to be the minimum requirements for the promotion of the public health, safety, morals, comfort, convenience, prosperity, and general welfare. Where the conditions imposed by any provision of this code upon the use of land or buildings or upon the bulk of buildings are either more restrictive or less restrictive than comparable conditions imposed by any other provision of this code or of any other law, ordinance, resolution, rule, or regulation of any kind, the regulations that are more restrictive or that impose higher standards or requirements shall govern. When one title of the BIMC is silent on the issue and another title contains explicit regulations, the explicit regulations shall govern. When one title of the BIMC contains general regulations and another contains more detailed regulations on the same topic, the more detailed regulations shall govern. (Ord. 2011-02 § 2 (Exh. A), 2011).  Likewise, reliance on the definitions section of BIMC 18.12.050 to ignore the pre-existing development on the north parcel is also misplaced.  The brief definition of “Density” provided there (“’Density’ means the number of dwelling units allowed in the lot area, not including accessory dwelling units. In zones that use floor area ratio (FAR) in place of units per acre, “density” means the maximum floor area allowed.”) is merely a high-level explanation that positions the term in a general way, and does not speak to the many variables (including zones, bonuses, or restrictions imposed by other Code provisions) that may be involved in assessing the density appropriate for any particular parcel.  It is not an instruction to disregard pre-existing development built pursuant to a conditional use permit when assessing residential density in the Island’s Conservation Area.  Such an approach, aggregating one type of development on top of another, is entirely antithetical to the purpose of the R-0.4 residential zones and the Conservation Areas identified by the Comprehensive Plan.  The Code must be interpreted in a manner consistent with the Comprehensive Plan, not in a manner that disregards its clear objectives.  A second misinterpretation of the Code that leads to the mistaken view that 12 residences are currently permitted on the Bethany Lutheran property is the inappropriate reliance on Accessory Dwelling Units (”ADUs”) to act as a 2X multiplier when calculating density in this context.  That inappropriately transforms what the Code contemplates as “accessories” for the benefit of property owners into stand-alone residences that are entirely separate from the rights that accrue to the property owner under our existing Code.  That is inconsistent with the language and intent of the Code, which describes ADUs as “subordinate” uses of the property – not primary uses, as would be the case if they were entirely stand-alone properties.  See the Code provision on Accessory Dwelling Units (BIMC 18.09.030.I.5, limiting ADUs to 900 sq. ft., among other things).  Indeed, the plain meaning of the term “accessory” (per the Merriam Webster dictionary) is “an object or device that is not essential in itself but adds to the beauty, convenience, or effectiveness of something else.”  (Emphasis added.)  Thus, an ADU adds to the convenience or utility of a property owner’s holding; it attaches to that holding.  It does not serve as a basis for multiplying any density determination by two and creating entirely separate property interests.  To use it in that way would be to nullify the meaning of the word “accessory.”  The term “accessory” is not defined in the Code.  Under such circumstances, the Code provides that the common usage of the term should be applied.  See BIMC 1.04.030:       1.04.030 Interpretation of language. All words and phrases not defined in the ordinances of the city shall be construed according to the common usage of the language, but technical words and phrases and such others as may have acquired a specific and appropriate meaning in the law shall be construed and understood according to such technical or specific meaning. (Ord. 2003-24 § 17, 2003: Ord. 82-05 § 3, 1982) The “common usage” of the term “accessory” refers to something that “adds to the beauty, convenience, or effectiveness of something else,” not to a stand-alone entity.  Accordingly, in this context, relying on the ADU provision to multiply the Bethany Lutheran density calculation by a factor of two is a plain violation of the language and intention of the Code.  We urge you to reject that tendentious misinterpretation.     If the points set forth above are properly considered, we believe that the Base Density calculation for the Bethany Lutheran property would exclude the north parcel (which is already developed in a manner that should not be exceeded for an R-0.4 zone, unless the intention of the owner is to remove all the pre-existing structures), exclude any multiplier effect for ADUs, and be limited to one or two residences for the south parcel (which is less than 4 acres, while R-0.4 zoning allows one residence per 2.5 acres, approximately).  With that baseline established, the discussion of whether, and to what extent, the City should allow for added density can proceed without the distortion of supposing that the Code would already permit 12 residences on those 8.43 acres.        Thank you for carefully considering the concerns set forth above.  We hope you will share them with the members of the City Council during your presentation on July 26.  We look forward to working with you on the Bethany Lutheran proposal and would welcome the opportunity to meet with you again to discuss these concerns or answer any questions you may have.      Best regards,   Joseph McMillan ------------------- Sign the petition against this current proposal  ---------------------------------------------- The B.I.STANDER Podcast is a conversational podcast unique to Bainbridge Island and Seattle Washington, that covers Society &  Human Interest stories, music and arts.

Lena Levin - Our Ukrainian community member
Today we welcome: Lena Levin to the podcast. Hi, my name is Lena and as many of you know I grew up in the southern Ukrainian city of Mykolaiv. The city is only 30 miles from the occupied Kherson and is surrounded by the Russian military. Almost 500k residents cannot flee, their stores are running short on supplies, many people, like my elderly parents or families with small kids, cannot find groceries or medicine.   Established humanitarian organizations are absent in the region, as they focus on the larger cities like Kyiv or Odessa, and it might take weeks and small cities like Mykolaiv get any relief.   My long-term friend Dima and his wife Nastya are still in Mykolaiv. They won't be leaving. Like many brave Ukrainians, they took matters into their own hands. They are risking their lives to find supplies by driving around town and delivering them to the ones in need, like my parents and many others. They also provide much needed supplies to the local soldiers, who are incredibly brave and made headlines by shooting 4 Russian helicopters in one day.   Dima and Nastya are just regular people with regular jobs, so they rely on donations. I know many have donated money to support Ukraine, but any amount will make a difference. $20 can make a big difference for a family who requires baby formula or food down there.   All proceeds from this fundraiser will be transferred to Dima, no exceptions. I will be sharing their photos and videos, you can also follow @nastya_lunastya, @pandemoniy on Instagram. https://www.gofundme.com/f/mykolaiv Become part of the Podcastville Community on Patreon!  The B.I.Stander Podcast is a listener supported show, please consider subscribing.  Thank you The B.I.STANDER Podcast is a conversational podcast unique to Bainbridge Island and Seattle Washington, that covers Society &  Human Interest stories, music and arts.

We are shoreline homeowners, neighbors, and Island residents. Some of us live on Little Manzanita Bay; some of us live in the neighborhood; others of us use the two public road ends on either side of the Bay.  We love Little Manzanita Bay for its tranquility, natural beauty, family-friendly waters, and as a haven for human-powered recreation. Because Little Manzanita Bay is shallow and quiet, we bring our families and our binoculars; we swim, paddle-board and kayak all around the bay and up Little Manzanita Creek, a magical place that is home to spawning salmon.

Hear Here with Bill Werlin
Today we welcome: Bill Werlin - Co- Founder Hear Here The Joy of DiscoveryOnce you're bitten by the Joy of Discovery, travel to both new places and old favorites become ingrained in one's psyche. When you think of it, why do people travel? It's that interest in seeing new places, having new experiences, and learning about the places you're traveling through. For me, it was driving through Colorado and New Mexico with my grandfather back in the early '60s. As a miner, rancher and State Director of Penal Institutions, he had an amazing knowledge of Colorado history, geology, current events in various towns and was a terrific speaker and storyteller. My experience of the passing landscape or cresting a hill and seeing a town laid out before us was completely altered and enhanced as I heard a variety of stories and explanations about what I was seeing. I could envision the battles, see the miners working the veins, hear about how the town came to be and how it got its name while being in the spot where it happened. Years later, as a road-dog ski salesman in the early ski industry, I again traveled the highways and backroads of Colorado and six other Rocky Mountain states. And without fail, my mind would wander back to my chauffeur days and wish I could hear the stories from my grandfather about what I was seeing as I moved along. Jump ahead some 40+ years and I had the good fortune to have a get-acquainted lunch with Woody, the co-founder of HearHere. Toward the end of our conversations, he asked if I ever had an idea that could be applicable to this new thing called the Internet. I described the idea of hearing about what you're seeing and the rest is a story in motion. Finding the Right HearHere Story When you think about it, there is emotion involved in almost everything in life. When you hear about hot springs in the desert, or hear that there are tunnels underneath Los Angeles, they are dry, almost boring facts. But when you dig further and have amazing storytellers recount the real saga of Dirty Socks Hot Springs - nature's own laundromat for miners clothes and old smelly socks or that the tunnels under LA were surreptitious byways for exuberant party-goers headed to underground speakeasies during prohibition, your imagination creates an entirely different, really entertaining vision of what happened here.

This is America’s day. This is democracy’s day. A day of history and hope. Of renewal and resolve. Through a crucible for the ages America has been tested anew and America has risen to the challenge. Today, we celebrate the triumph not of a candidate, but of a cause, the cause of democracy. The will of the people has been heard and the will of the people has been heeded. We have learned again that democracy is precious. Democracy is fragile. And at this hour, my friends, democracy has prevailed. So now, on this hallowed ground where just days ago violence sought to shake this Capitol’s very foundation, we come together as one nation, under God, indivisible, to carry out the peaceful transfer of power as we have for more than two centuries. We look ahead in our uniquely American way – restless, bold, optimistic – and set our sights on the nation we know we can be and we must be. I thank my predecessors of both parties for their presence here. I thank them from the bottom of my heart. You know the resilience of our Constitution and the strength of our nation. As does President Carter, who I spoke to last night but who cannot be with us today, but whom we salute for his lifetime of service. I have just taken the sacred oath each of these patriots took — an oath first sworn by George Washington. But the American story depends not on any one of us, not on some of us, but on all of us. On “We the People” who seek a more perfect Union. This is a great nation and we are a good people. Over the centuries through storm and strife, in peace and in war, we have come so far. But we still have far to go. We will press forward with speed and urgency, for we have much to do in this winter of peril and possibility. Much to repair. Much to restore. Much to heal. Much to build. And much to gain. Few periods in our nation’s history have been more challenging or difficult than the one we’re in now. A once-in-a-century virus silently stalks the country. It’s taken as many lives in one year as America lost in all of World War II. Millions of jobs have been lost. Hundreds of thousands of businesses closed. A cry for racial justice some 400 years in the making moves us. The dream of justice for all will be deferred no longer. A cry for survival comes from the planet itself. A cry that can’t be any more desperate or any more clear. And now, a rise in political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism that we must confront and we will defeat. To overcome these challenges – to restore the soul and to secure the future of America – requires more than words. It requires that most elusive of things in a democracy: Unity. Unity. In another January in Washington, on New Year’s Day 1863, Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. When he put pen to paper, the President said, “If my name ever goes down into history it will be for this act and my whole soul is in it.” My whole soul is in it. Today, on this January day, my whole soul is in this: Bringing America together. Uniting our people. And uniting our nation. I ask every American to join me in this cause. Uniting to fight the common foes we face: Anger, resentment, hatred. Extremism, lawlessness, violence. Disease, joblessness, hopelessness. With unity we can do great things. Important things. We can right wrongs. We can put people to work in good jobs. We can teach our children in safe schools. We can overcome this deadly virus. We can reward work, rebuild the middle class, and make health care secure for all. We can deliver racial justice. We can make America, once again, the leading force for good in the world. I know speaking of unity can sound to some like a foolish fantasy. I know the forces that divide us are deep and they are real. But I also know they are not new. Our history has been a constant struggle between the American ideal that we are all created equal and the harsh, ugly reality that racism, nativism, fear, and demonization have long torn us apart. The battle is perennial. Victory is never assured. Through the Civil War, the Great Depression, World War, 9/11, through struggle, sacrifice, and setbacks, our “better angels” have always prevailed. In each of these moments, enough of us came together to carry all of us forward. And, we can do so now. History, faith, and reason show the way, the way of unity. We can see each other not as adversaries but as neighbors. We can treat each other with dignity and respect. We can join forces, stop the shouting, and lower the temperature. For without unity, there is no peace, only bitterness and fury. No progress, only exhausting outrage. No nation, only a state of chaos. This is our historic moment of crisis and challenge, and unity is the path forward. And, we must meet this moment as the United States of America. If we do that, I guarantee you, we will not fail. We have never, ever, ever failed in America when we have acted together. And so today, at this time and in this place, let us start afresh. All of us. Let us listen to one another. Hear one another. See one another. Show respect to one another. Politics need not be a raging fire destroying everything in its path. Every disagreement doesn’t have to be a cause for total war. And, we must reject a culture in which facts themselves are manipulated and even manufactured. My fellow Americans, we have to be different than this. America has to be better than this. And, I believe America is better than this. Just look around. Here we stand, in the shadow of a Capitol dome that was completed amid the Civil War, when the Union itself hung in the balance. Yet we endured and we prevailed. Here we stand looking out to the great Mall where Dr. King spoke of his dream. Here we stand, where 108 years ago at another inaugural, thousands of protestors tried to block brave women from marching for the right to vote. Today, we mark the swearing-in of the first woman in American history elected to national office – Vice President Kamala Harris. Don’t tell me things can’t change. Here we stand across the Potomac from Arlington National Cemetery, where heroes who gave the last full measure of devotion rest in eternal peace. And here we stand, just days after a riotous mob thought they could use violence to silence the will of the people, to stop the work of our democracy, and to drive us from this sacred ground. That did not happen. It will never happen. Not today. Not tomorrow. Not ever. To all those who supported our campaign I am humbled by the faith you have placed in us. To all those who did not support us, let me say this: Hear me out as we move forward. Take a measure of me and my heart. And if you still disagree, so be it. That’s democracy. That’s America. The right to dissent peaceably, within the guardrails of our Republic, is perhaps our nation’s greatest strength. Yet hear me clearly: Disagreement must not lead to disunion. And I pledge this to you: I will be a President for all Americans. I will fight as hard for those who did not support me as for those who did. Many centuries ago, Saint Augustine, a saint of my church, wrote that a people was a multitude defined by the common objects of their love. What are the common objects we love that define us as Americans? I think I know. Opportunity. Security. Liberty. Dignity. Respect. Honor. And, yes, the truth. Recent weeks and months have taught us a painful lesson. There is truth and there are lies. Lies told for power and for profit. And each of us has a duty and responsibility, as citizens, as Americans, and especially as leaders – leaders who have pledged to honor our Constitution and protect our nation — to defend the truth and to defeat the lies. I understand that many Americans view the future with some fear and trepidation. I understand they worry about their jobs, about taking care of their families, about what comes next. I get it. But the answer is not to turn inward, to retreat into competing factions, distrusting those who don’t look like you do, or worship the way you do, or don’t get their news from the same sources you do. We must end this uncivil war that pits red against blue, rural versus urban, conservative versus liberal. We can do this if we open our souls instead of hardening our hearts. If we show a little tolerance and humility. If we’re willing to stand in the other person’s shoes just for a moment. Because here is the thing about life: There is no accounting for what fate will deal you. There are some days when we need a hand. There are other days when we’re called on to lend one. That is how we must be with one another. And, if we are this way, our country will be stronger, more prosperous, more ready for the future. My fellow Americans, in the work ahead of us, we will need each other. We will need all our strength to persevere through this dark winter. We are entering what may well be the toughest and deadliest period of the virus. We must set aside the politics and finally face this pandemic as one nation. I promise you this: as the Bible says weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning. We will get through this, together The world is watching today. So here is my message to those beyond our borders: America has been tested and we have come out stronger for it. We will repair our alliances and engage with the world once again. Not to meet yesterday’s challenges, but today’s and tomorrow’s. We will lead not merely by the example of our power but by the power of our example. We will be a strong and trusted partner for peace, progress, and security. We have been through so much in this nation. And, in my first act as President, I would like to ask you to join me in a moment of silent prayer to remember all those we lost this past year to the pandemic. To those 400,000 fellow Americans – mothers and fathers, husbands and wives, sons and daughters, friends, neighbors, and co-workers. We will honor them by becoming the people and nation we know we can and should be. Let us say a silent prayer for those who lost their lives, for those they left behind, and for our country. Amen. This is a time of testing. We face an attack on democracy and on truth. A raging virus. Growing inequity. The sting of systemic racism. A climate in crisis. America’s role in the world. Any one of these would be enough to challenge us in profound ways. But the fact is we face them all at once, presenting this nation with the gravest of responsibilities. Now we must step up. All of us. It is a time for boldness, for there is so much to do. And, this is certain. We will be judged, you and I, for how we resolve the cascading crises of our era. Will we rise to the occasion? Will we master this rare and difficult hour? Will we meet our obligations and pass along a new and better world for our children? I believe we must and I believe we will. And when we do, we will write the next chapter in the American story. It’s a story that might sound something like a song that means a lot to me. It’s called “American Anthem” and there is one verse stands out for me: “The work and prayers of centuries have brought us to this day What shall be our legacy? What will our children say?… Let me know in my heart When my days are through America America I gave my best to you.” Let us add our own work and prayers to the unfolding story of our nation. If we do this then when our days are through our children and our children’s children will say of us they gave their best. They did their duty. They healed a broken land. My fellow Americans, I close today where I began, with a sacred oath. Before God and all of you I give you my word. I will always level with you. I will defend the Constitution. I will defend our democracy. I will defend America. I will give my all in your service thinking not of power, but of possibilities. Not of personal interest, but of the public good. And together, we shall write an American story of hope, not fear. Of unity, not division. Of light, not darkness. An American story of decency and dignity. Of love and of healing. Of greatness and of goodness. May this be the story that guides us. The story that inspires us. The story that tells ages yet to come that we answered the call of history. We met the moment. That democracy and hope, truth and justice, did not die on our watch but thrived. That our America secured liberty at home and stood once again as a beacon to the world. That is what we owe our forebearers, one another, and generations to follow. So, with purpose and resolve we turn to the tasks of our time. Sustained by faith. Driven by conviction. And, devoted to one another and to this country we love with all our hearts. May God bless America and may God protect our troops. Thank you, America. via: https://millercenter.org/the-presidency/presidential-speeches/january-20-2021-inaugural-address
