"In my nine plus decades, I 've formed some views about life and living ... I have concluded that we are all put on this earth for a purpose. That purpose is to make it, within our capabilities, a better place in which to live. We can do this by painting a picture, writing a poem, building a bridge, protecting the environment, combating prejudice and injustice, and in a thousand other ways."
General James Doolittle, Medal of Honor recipient, WWII
