Teddy Roosevelt 1st Inaugural - Grateful to the Giver of Good

Theodore Roosevelt was the 26th President of the United States. In his first Inaugural address (1905) he said:

"My fellow-citizens, no people on earth have more cause to be thankful than ours, and this is said reverently, in no spirit of boastfulness in our own strength, but with gratitude to the Giver of Good who has blessed us with the conditions which have enabled us to achieve so large a measure of well-being and of happiness."
