We deceive ourselves when we fancy that only weakness needs support. Strength needs it far more.

Donna Reed was simply an extraordinary woman, a woman of great strength, kindness, integrity and compassion.

If we don't re-charge the American Brand, all future challenges - economic, social and political - are destined to be driven to the brink, further jeopardizing the strength and competitiveness of our country and its citizens.
