A citizen of the world, an alien on the planet, and an emissary of the kingdom that is coming, calling no place home, still I have made a home of the nation founded on liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. And it is a happy thing to owe loyalties to the country that has made room for us to freely serve The Captain. It is worth busting some fire-showers into the darkness. It is worth celebrating.
And the quickly-coming loss of all this is worth lamenting. Be glad for what is and what has been. Sorrow for the things that are coming. Be expectant.
Where the Spirit of the The Captain is, there is liberty.
And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory,
are being transformed………
