Wise (and serious) words from President Biden at the White House Correspondent’s dinner from ~2:57:00 [here]. More relevant now in the midst of all the things around us …

BTW, both Joe Biden and Trevor Noah did very well … very light hearted and satirical … yet, at times dead serious …

On the Obligation of the press :

  • To seek the truth as best as you can
  • Not to inflame or entertain
  • But to illuminate and educate

American Democracy :

  • Is not a reality show, but reality itself

On Democracy :

  • it is never guaranteed,
  • it has to be earned,
  • it has to defended,
  • it has to be protected …

Times of enormous change presents enormous opportunity !!
