Obama on the Arts

Andrew Taylor posted this Obama quote from the Kennedy Center Honors that I thought I would share: “In times of war and sacrifice, the arts — and these artists — remind us to sing and to laugh and to live. In times of plenty, they challenge our conscience and implore us to remember the least among us. In moments of division or doubt, they compel us to see the common values that we share; the ideals to which we aspire, even if we sometimes fall short. In days of hardship, they renew our hope that brighter days are still ahead.

Well said Mr. President (or at least, great speechwriter...)!  Thanks for sharing Andrew.
