I have a dream. This nation will rise up. We meet in an hour of change and challenge. In a decade of hope and fear. In an age of both knowledge and ignorance. The greater our knowledge increases, the greater our ignorance unfolds. One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. People say you have to have a lot of passion for what you're doing and it's totally true and the reason is, uh, is because it's so hard that if you don't, any rational person would give up. It's really hard and you have to do it over a sustained period of time. So if you don't love it, if you're not having fun doing it, and you don't really love it, you're gonna give up. Often times it's the ones that are successful love what they did so they could persevere you know when it got really tough. And, and the ones that didn't really love it, quit, because they're sane. Right? Who would want to put up with this stuff if you don't love it? So, it's a lot of hard work. I'm just a girl from a trailer park who had a dream.

Written Text

Every great advancement in mankind started with a challenge.  
We Shall Overcome 
To change the world... 
You must first challenge yourself. 
There's only one challenge.
