Play Ball!  

When you play a game always try and wish to win; otherwise your opponent will have no fun
- but never wish to win so much that you cannot be happy without it.
Seek to win only by fair and lawful means according to the rules of the game. This will leave
you without bitterness toward your opponent or shame before others.
Take pleasure in the game even though you do not obtain the victory; for the purpose of the
game is not merely to win, but to find joy and strength in trying.

  Heritage of our Flag

More than three score years ago, President Wilson said, "This flag
which we honor and under which we serve, is the emblem of our unity,
our power and our thought and purpose as a nation. It has no other
character than that which we give it from generation to generation. The
choices are ours. It floats in majestic silence above the hosts that
execute choices, whether in peace or in war. And yet, though silent, it
speaks to us, speaks to us of the past, of the men and women who went
before us and of the records they wrote upon it. We celebrate the day of
its birth, and from its birth until now it has witnessed a great history, has
floated on high the symbol of great events, or a great plan of life worked
out by a great people." This is the heritage it gives to us, let us serve it
well. Goodnight.
