Fun Quote/Fact

 “If we can find constructive ways for people to work together, learn together, talk together, be together, that’s the best shot we’ve got to avoid some of the horrible problems we see in the rest of the world, to avoid some of the difficult problems we’ve had in our own history, and to make progress on the problems that we still have here today.”  - President Bill Clinton, December 3, 1997
