The military might of a country represents its national strength. Only when it builds up its military might in every way can it develop into a thriving country.
Racial profiling punishes innocent individuals for the past actions of those who look and sound like them. It misdirects crucial resources and undercuts the trust needed between law enforcement and the communities they serve. It has no place in our national discourse, and no place in our nation's police departments.
Benjamin Todd Jealous
The Black skin is not a badge of shame, but rather a glorious symbol of national greatness.
The American flag is the symbol of our freedom, national pride and history.
The political lesson of Watergate is this: Never again must America allow an arrogant, elite guard of political adolescents to by-pass the regular party organization and dictate the terms of a national election.
Gerald R. Ford

I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts.
Bullying is a national epidemic.
I think as a Canadian hockey player, you go through it in your mind so many times, being able to stand on that blue line and hear your national anthem play and being a gold medal champion, you dream of that. And then to be able to accomplish that and actually win a gold medal and represent your country its an amazing feeling.
Crowded classrooms and half-day sessions are a tragic waste of our greatest national resource - the minds of our children.

There is no room in baseball for discrimination. It is our national pastime and a game for all.
While natural disasters capture headlines and national attention short-term, the work of recovery and rebuilding is long-term.
Sylvia Mathews Burwell

Biodiversity can't be maintained by protecting a few species in a zoo, or by preserving greenbelts or national parks. To function properly, nature needs more room than that. It can maintain itself, however, without human expense, without zookeepers, park rangers, foresters or gene banks. All it needs is to be left alone.
Real cultural diversity results from the interchange of ideas, products, and influences, not from the insular development of a single national style.

Third, we must change the character of our politics to promote fertile ground for reforms.
