Establish Outside Standards by Which to Measure Ourselves

I am delighted to be with you today. In my morning walks I periodically walk by the business college. I have always admired the building, and I’m grateful someone invited me in.

During the tour we were fortunate to hear your choir rehearsing in this room for the anniversary events of this week. They sounded like angels—angels who were happy to be here.
