This powerful statement is engraved on the side of the Department of Justice Building in Washington, DC. It is always worth remembering, but especially in times when those in power are working so hard to undermine the precepts of a lawful society.
I fully support the fine men and women who have dedicated their careers and their lives to ensure our nation abides by the rule of law. The work of the Justice Department is critical to our freedom.
All those currently in power who are attempting to discredit and and undermine the efforts of the DOJ do so because they are afraid of the truth and fear justice being done. They neither believe in the supremacy of the law, or feel that the law applies to them.
They act as if they are above the law. Robert Mueller and the Justice Department will soon correct that very mistaken understanding.
The biggest limitation we have is our own fears. One of my own biggest fears has always been the fear of failure.
Whatever our fears, they hold us back from achieving all that we could if we push through them. We need the courage to attempt greater and more significant challenges. We just need the courage to begin.
In the end, I would much rather fail and look foolish attempting the impossible than always wondering what would have happened if I had tried. As I have often said, any action on behalf of those in need makes a huge difference.
Facing our fear, naming it, and recognizing how it limits what we can achieve is the first step to achieving so much more. And for me, that makes me want to attempt even greater things, especially on behalf of the poor and the hungry.
