Word Verification:

"We hear so much about the greed of business. Well, frankly, I'd like to hear a little more about the courage, generosity, and creativity of business.

I'd like to hear it pointed out that entrepreneurs don't have guaranteed annual incomes. Before they can turn a profit, they must anticipate and deliver what consumers want. They must risk their money with investments.

The truth is, before entrepreneurs can take, they must give. And business begins with giving.

Wouldn't it be nice to hear a little more about the forgotten heroes of America ‐‐ those who create most of our new jobs, like the owners of stores down the street; the faithfuls who support our churches, synagogues, schools, and communities; the brave men and women everywhere who produce our goods, feed a hungry world, and keep our families warm while they invest in the future to build a better America?

That's where miracles are made, not in Washington, D.C."

President Ronald Reagan
June 22, 1983

"Time and money spent in helping others to do more for themselves, is far better than mere giving." - Henry Ford
