STATE OF THE UNION | SPEECH EXCERPTS

'The State of Our Union Is Strong'

January 28, 1998| From Associated Press

I have launched this national initiative on race to help us recognize our common interests and bridge the opportunity gaps that keep us from becoming one America. Let us begin by recognizing what we still must overcome. Discrimination against any American is un-American.

A NATION'S GLORY: Today, that star spangled banner, along with the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are on display . . . I ask all Americans to support our project to restore all our treasures so that the generations of the 21st century can see for themselves the images and the words that are the old and continuing glory of America. An America that has continued to rise through every age against every challenge, a people of great works and greater possibilities, who have always, always found the wisdom and strength to come together as one nation. To widen the circle of opportunity. To deepen the meaning of our freedom. To form that more perfect union. Let that be our gift to the 21st century.

God bless you and God bless the United States.
