Pathe presents: "The Lure of the East -The film-record of the Forbes-Leith ...." Rest of title obscured by timecode. To be checked. <br/> <br/>This is a 22 minute documentary covering an expedition from Leeds to Quetta in Pakistan (formerly India). It was filmed by Montague Redknap and the editor was Frederick Watts. A documentation file exists relating to this extraordinary expedition undertaken by Major F.A.C. Forbes-Leith F.R.G.S. <br/> <br/>Introductory intertitles begin "Somewhere deep in the heart of every Britisher lies hidden the roaming or pioneering instinct - call it what you will - which has led our race to the ends of the earth". <br/> <br/>The journey begins in Leeds, Yorkshire in April 1924. Various shots of Leeds, street scenes - very nicely shot. A map then shows the projected route for Major Forbes-Leith's trip. Places to be visited along the way include Boulogne, Paris, Genoa, Venice, Belgrade, Sofia, Constantinople, Damascus, Baghdad, Tehran, Shiraz and Kerman. <br/> <br/>The car in which Major Forbes-Leith will travel is called "Felix II". We see a close up of the mascot for the trip - a jaunty Felix the Cat soft toy wearing a spotted scarf. Grey weather bids the travellers goodbye at Folkestone. We see the car being loaded on to a boat by a winch. M/S of two men on the docks - possibly Forbes-Leith and Montague Redknap. Various shots of people embarking, being waved off and the boat leaving port. <br/> <br/>The car is winched out of the boat at Calais and we see French men stroking Felix and bidding our travellers farewell. The expedition arrives in Paris. Various travelling shots from the car. Film star Douglas Fairbanks is seen wishing the travellers well. Good C/U of Fairbanks pretending to talk to Felix. Shots of the car travelling through Paris. Cameraman Redknap is clearly seen operating his camera in the car (two cameramen on the trip then obviously...) <br/> <br/>Major Forbes-Leith continues his travels through Europe. passing through France and Italy He visits the Forest of Fontainebleau, the great palace of Versailles (?), an inn at Briare where Napoleon made his first headquarters in 1814, the Loire Valley then Venice. Various shots of Venice landmarks including the House of the Borgias and the Rialto Bridge seen from on board a gondola. All very nicely shot. <br/> <br/>Intertitle states that the stop is Moulins (the Venice section must be out of sequence). Panning shot of a square then a sequence showing roadside basket makers (possibly Romany gypsies). Flassons is another place along the way (not sure where this is - France presumably) then the town of Orange (the Roman arch is seen). An intertitle states: "In the local "Community washing place" Wroe attended to sundry laundry". Wroe is presumably one of the travellers. We see him larking around with local women washing clothes at a communal washing area. They splash each other. Cannes is the next stop - intertitle reminds the viewer of a recent forest fire in the area. Panning shot shows the landscape which used to be a beautiful forest but now looks rather bare. Monte Carlo - a shot of the famous Casino. <br/> <br/>Genoa - various street scenes. Intertitle describes it as "the Liverpool of Italy". The house of Christopher Columbus is seen in L/S. A large column is shown - it is not named and not recognised by this cataloguer. Our party visits the old moated castle of Montagnhana. A young boy fishes with a long pole and the castle is seen in the background. <br/> <br/>Trieste - men and women in their Sunday best walk along the quayside. <br/> <br/>Yugoslavia (Jugo-Slavia in intertitle). Felix II is driven through country streets. Zagreb - a local policeman is featured, his uniform is very similar to a London policeman. Major Forbes-Leith continues his journey to India. There is nothing much to interest him in Austria (!) but the film includes a shot of a beautiful Chateau he "came across" (it isn't named). <br/> <br/>Intertile states that "Eighty miles from Belgrade we still found evidence of the devastation of war", and next sequence features the party travelling through rough terrain. One of the men is standing on the car's running board as it travels down a hill, he then runs along pushing the car as it picks up momentum - presumably there is a problem with the mechanics. The car is seen driving across a strange low bridge - possibly across a lake. Location is not specific for any of these shots. <br/> <br/>At Nish, some of our travellers are seen walking along with a group of gypsies in traditional dress, some of them play instruments. Flash-frame intertitle says "They dance all day and the Bride (on the left) may be distinguished by her painted cheeks." We see a group of women performing a traditional wedding dance. C/U of musicians. <br/> <br/>Flash-frame intertitle says "Past Pirot Gorge. (Where Wroe procured the next day's diner on the hoof.)" Two of our party are seen talking to a shepherd. He catches one of his flock and one of our party picks it up and jiggles it up and down. Various shots of an unspecified location including women weaving and chatting out of doors. C/U of an elderly lady spinning wool by hand. Two other women display a rug they have made. <br/> <br/>Felix II drives off into the distance toward Dragoman Pass - a pile of rocks blocks the road so they reverse back down a hill then drive off road in an attempt to get around the rocks. <br/>Felix II is driven through a stream when attempts at getting across Dragoman Pass fail. They carry on across the countryside. In Bulgaria a group of men chat to our intrepid explorers as they stand beside the car with the bonnet up. Panning shots of city streets of Bulgarian capital of Sofia. We see the Cathedral, which flash-frame intertitle informs was tragically blown up later on. Bomb damaged buildings - presumably in Sofia. <br/> <br/>Our explorers come out of a building with King Boris; they shake hands and the King has a good look at the car. The King's sister, Princess Eudoxie shakes hands with our travellers. Animated discussion follows. A bouquet of flowers is given to one of our men. We see Felix II being driven along with many other cars following. Intertitle talks of reaching Philippopolis, passing en route the old Roman ruins of Hissar. The car is driven through a partly destroyed archway. High angle shots of the city of Philippopolis. <br/> <br/>Intertitle states the expedition head off towards Turkey and get stuck in a swamp. A group of men tow a broken down Felix II across a field. Eventually the car gets going. Some farm workers watch the events. The men are thanked with handshakes <br/> <br/>Intertitle states that the explorers reach Adrianople, "a depressing city of 30,000 people (in 1910 it contained 100,000), where stands the largest Mosque in the world". L/S of the temple. Our explorers have their shoes polished in the open air by a man in a fez. Various shots of streets and locals - presumably Turkey? <br/> <br/>Intertitle talks of a stop near Silivri, close by the Sea of Mamora. L/S of a broken down Felix II. Four donkeys and several men attempt to pull Felix II out of a muddy stream in which he is stuck. Street scene - trams, men carrying large trunks and sacks on their backs. Intertitle refers to Turkish capital - presumably Constantinople (now Istanbul). <br/>Ankara (?), Turkey. Felix II is driven through a desert landscape and across a frontier (?). <br/> <br/>Pai Tak Pass (northwest of Baghdad, across border into Persia) - "we climbed along the fine military road made by our forces during the war." Various shots of Felix driving along a dusty road. Last intertitle reads: "This was the same route to India taken by Alexander the Great, and we were surprised to find one of the commemorative arches built by him" but film ends here.

For them, the ocean voyage may, nowadays, by only half their journey. The St. Lawrence leads to an inland Mediterranean, shared by Canada and America. From the mouth of the great river to the most inland port is about the same distance as across the Atlantic: over two thousand miles. Thanks to the great new system of locks and canals, built in the international rapids section of the river, the St. Lawrence Seaway (already in operation) give direct access to the Great Lakes for ocean-going ships.

THE REPORTER SOUND FROM THE SEGMENT IS NOT AVAILABLE. Harvest Festivals are celebrated each May, the one month of rest between harvest and planting for the following year. The festivals are thanksgiving for a good harvest and in honor of the patron saint of the farmers. The most colorful celebrations are held in the towns of Lucban, Tayabas and Syriaya. In a country where the different dialects provide around 200 words for "rice", this resource plays an integral part in the decorations, like the kiping, which are multicolored rice wafers. In Bulacan province the Carabao (water buffalo) festival and the fertility rites conclude these intense and happy Harvest Festivals.

High shot of ship crew member being winched into helicopter 12. Mid of rescued crew members being led away from coast guard helicopter on ground STORYLINE: US forecasters said on Monday that Hurricane Sandy was continuing to move quickly and should make landfall by early evening in southern New Jersey or Delaware. The National Hurricane Centre said the storm's top sustained winds were holding at about 90 miles per hour (150 kilometres per hour) with higher gusts. At 4 p.m. EDT (2000 GMT), Sandy's centre was about 55 miles (150 kilometres) east-southeast of Cape May, New Jersey. It was headed west-northwest at 28 miles per hour (44 kilometres per hour). Sandy was set to collide with a wintry storm from the west and cold air streaming down from the Arctic. The combination super storm could menace some 50 (m) million people in the most heavily populated corridor in the nation, from the East Coast to the Great Lakes. From Washington to Boston, subways, buses, trains and schools were shut down and more than 7,000 flights grounded across the region of 50 (m) million people. Hundreds of thousands of people were under orders to move to higher ground to await the storm's fury. Authorities warned that New York City and Long Island could get the worst of the storm surge: an 11-foot (3.35 metre) onslaught of seawater that could swamp lower Manhattan, flood the subways and damage the underground network of electrical and communications lines that are vital to the nation's financial capital. A construction crane atop a luxury high-rise in New York City collapsed and dangled precariously over the streets on Monday, which were cleared as a precaution. Forecasters said the winds atop the building may have been close to 95 miles per hour (152 kilometres per hour). The nearly completed high-rise is known as One57 and is in one of the city's most desirable neighbourhoods, near Carnegie Hall, Columbus Circle and Central Park. The New York Times recently called it a "global billionaires' club" because the nine full-floor apartments near the top have all been sold to billionaires. About 90 miles (150 kilometres) off Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, a US coast guard team rescued 14 crew members by helicopter from the HMS Bounty, a replica 18th-century sailing ship that sank in a storm. The ship was built for the 1962 Marlon Brando film "Mutiny on the Bounty." Those rescued had donned survival suits and life jackets and boarded two lifeboats after the ship began taking on water. They were plucked from 18-foot (5.5 metre) seas just before sunrise. Two other crew members are still missing.

Thailand Dolphins - Rescue effort for trapped humpback dolphins
NAME: THA DOLPHINS 040105N TAPE: EF05/0013 IN_TIME: 10:25:48:24 DURATION: 00:02:06:18 SOURCES: APTN DATELINE: Khao Lak - 4 Jan 2005 RESTRICTIONS: SHOTLIST: 1. Dolphin surfacing in lagoon 2. Wide shot of dolphin swimming in lagoon 3. Various of Greek divers from the Athens fire department unloading boat from truck 4. People in water beside floats which are connected to nets being used to catch the dolphins 5. Wide shot of line of people in water with boat 6. Wide shot of dolphin surfacing 7.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Suwit Khunkitti, Thai Minister for Natural Resources and the Environment: "I think it is very important because it is also one life, and at least you know we''ve lost so many lives and all, it doesn''t matter if it is animal or human - it is a great thing, especially the tsunami survival." 12. SOUNDBITE: (Greek) Major Papa Dowis, Greek Special Rescue Team: "Actually we came from Greece not to rescue our citizens necessarily, not to rescue any live humans but we came to help in any way we could and especially in the care of dolphins. Dolphins are special to us Greeks. It''s a mission and it is very important. " 13. People on bank of lagoon, pulling at net 14. People on land pulling net, trying to herd or catch the dolphins 15. SOUNDBITE: (English) Jim Steyers, Myanmar Dolphin Project: "And if we can get about a rai or two (a rai is a unit of measure, 40 square metres) of lake bottom that''s free of debris, it''s no problem, it''s easy to drag the net across and bring the animal right up on the beach. So that''s the only issue now - is to get this lake clean, otherwise I just don''t know how else we''re going to do it." 15. Wide shot of dolphin surfacing as it swims in lagoon STORYLINE: Rescue workers in Thailand tried to save the lives of a humpback dolphin and her calf which were trapped in a small lagoon when tsunamis battered the coastline on December 26. Rescue teams on Tuesday tried unsuccessfully to herd the two dolphins into nets so they could be removed from a small lagoon in Khao Lak where the Asian tsunamis dumped them nine days earlier. The dolphins were spotted on Monday a kilometre (more than a half mile) from the sea. They were found by a man searching for his wife, and have become a symbol of hope amid the death and destruction caused by the massive waves that crushed local tourist resorts. Thailand''s Minister for Natural Resources and the Environment, Suwit Khunkitti, said it was great to hear that the dolphins were still alive, saying all life was important following the tsunami catastrophe. But the intense desire for a rescue attempt instead of the grim search for bodies led to dissension between a group of Greek divers from the Athens fire department and local fishermen. The divers, who realised their efforts to extricate the dolphins were doomed because their nets were too small, were told to leave the lagoon after local officials arrived and said they would try a traditional technique, even though a dolphin expert warned that it could harm the mammals. Men in boats, using larger nets, used a cacophony of noise to corner the animals, believed to be an Indo-Pacific humpback dolphin and her roughly three-year-old offspring. But the dolphins managed to slip out of the cordon, and the effort was called off for the day. The dolphins were expected to survive for up to a few more days in the murky, stagnating water, but there were concerns, including a lack of live fish to eat. The larger dolphin, about two metres (seven feet) long, appeared to have a back injury. While the rescue attempt went on, volunteers spotted several human bodies in the nearby vegetation, and one in the lagoon. Even before Tuesday''s effort began, American dolphin expert Jim Styers gave it only a 50 percent chance of success. Styers, who is from Seattle, is head consultant for the Myanmar Dolphin Project in Ranong, in northern Thailand, and has worked on a number of marine animal rescue efforts over the years, including the massive Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska. About 500-600 Indo-Pacific humpback dolphins are believed to inhabit the seas around Thailand, migrating between the Indian and Pacific oceans. Keywords - Indian ocean earthquake tsunami

Medium shot of subway train moving through station STORYLINE: Thrill seekers took the opportunity to experience the high winds and spectacular seas on Sunday in New jersey as Hurricane Sandy moves towards the country. New Jersey resident Bob Acquino decided to see the affects of the brewing super storm for himself. "I was sitting around with my wife and my daughter and we said let's take a ride and see this water and it's really something to see," he said. Forecasters are warning that the New York area could get the worst of the super storm moving its way towards the country and wreak havoc over 800 miles (1,300 kilometres) from the East Coast to the Great Lakes. Officials have suspended all train, bus and subway services Sunday night because of the risk of flooding, shutting down a system on which more than five (m) million riders a day depend on, causing frustrations for many. "I think it's ridiculous," said commuter Tiffany Sobers. "New York City is the melting pot of people just going to work and trying to make a living and can't even get around publicly, I'm stranded right now, I don't even know what I"m doing," she said. Sandy, a Category 1 hurricane with sustained winds of 75 mile per hour (120 kilometres per hour) as of Sunday evening, was blamed for 65 deaths in the Caribbean before it began churning up the Eastern Seaboard. As of 8 p.m (00:00 GMT)., it was centered about 485 miles (780 kilometres) southeast of New York City, moving at 15 mph (24 kph), with hurricane-force winds extending an incredible 175 miles (281.62 kilometres) from its centre. It was expected to hook left toward the mid-Atlantic coast and come ashore late Monday or early Tuesday, most likely in New Jersey, colliding with a wintry storm moving in from the west and cold air streaming down from the Arctic. Forecasters said that because of giant waves and high tides made worse by a full moon, the metropolitan area of New York with a population of about 20 (m) million people could get hit with an 11-foot (3.3-meter) wall of water.

And Congressman, I appreciate your welcome here, what a great morning in Jacksonville. Thank you." (CHEERS) "Wow, this has been fun these last 10 days or so in Florda, I've gotta tell ya, it's been great going across the state and meeting people in this wonderful state again. It's been fun going to the debates, I've loved the debates!" (CHEERS) 08:46:55: "It's, you know these debates have gone pretty well. Speaker Gingrich wasn't very happy with the debates though, (B00S) he said after the first debate he didn't do well because the crowd was so quiet, it threw him off. The second debate he said he didn't do well because he crowd was so loud, you know so, I think the real reason he hasn't done so well connecting with the people of Florida is that people actually saw him in those debates and listened to his background, his experience, and they learned for instance, that he was paid 1.6 million dollars to be a lobbyist for Freddie Mac and they said 'that's not what we want in the White House'. (CHEERS) 08:47:38: "I uh - what was that back there? (INAUDIBLE RESPONSE FROM MAN IN CROWD) send him to the moon huh? Well...(LAUGHTER) "The idea of the Moon as the 51st state is not what would have come to my mind as a campaign basis here in Florida. You know, this has been an exciting time and I think it's going to be a historic election. I know that right now a lot of people in this country are hurting. And right here in Florida are hurting. How many people here either personally or in their family or know someone whose been hurt by the housing crisis?" (CROWD RAISES HANDS) "Wow. This is what I see all over the state and people recognize that the policies that got us into this mess included the fact that we had something called Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae and they were guaranteeing mortgages when they knew people couldn't possibly pay them back, that led to prices going through the roof, a huge bubble erupted, people got hurt by it and the idea that someone running for President was getting paid by Freddie Mac at the time that was going on, 1.6 million dollars that just hurts people, and I think that's the real reason Speaker Gingrich has had such a hard time." 08:48:50: "I also think people realize that if they want to see change in Washington, you can't just elect the same poeple to take different chairs (CHEERS) You have to elect new people to come in and take over." "And so I think this is a question about the course of America. You have a President that has a very different view of what America ought to look like over the coming century than what I have. His view, in my opinion, begins with debt and massive spending. He is willing to spend a trillion dollars more every year than this country takes in. It is an unfathomable number. We're on track to become like Greece, sometime in the next 5 years or so. Our debt, total debt, as a percentage of the entire economy, the GDP is about 80% now. By the end of his first term - and his only term by the way (CHEERS) - that will go from roughly 80% to roughly 90% of the GDP. We're now getting to a point, where at some point people around the world are going to say they're going to stop loaning money to America if we don't pay them a lot more interest. And if that happens, we could totally crush our economy. And so I'm not one of those that says 'let's keep spending and borrowing', my view is that we've got cut federal spending, we've got to cap it, and we've got to finally balance the budget, and I'll do that job. (CHEERS) 08:50:19: "We have a President who looks at healthcare and says the government knows better than free people how to manage their own health care and so he crafts something known as Obamacare to guide our future in health care." (BOOS) "If I'm President, I will repeal Obamacare." (CHEERS) "And return to the Obamacare, the authority and responsibilty for their own health care." 08:50:45: "And then you have a President, well he practices something I call 'crony capitalism'. And it's kind of capitalism but instead of it being driven by the market and consumers, it's driven by politicians. And in this case, you watch what he's done. For instance, he wanted solar energy so he picks the company that he thinks will be successful with solar energy, and gives them 500 million dollars." "Now, if you've never been involved in the start-up of a business, you may not understand just how extraordinary that is. When we started Staples, the office superstore, we collected 5 or 10 million dollars to get that started. And if it worked well, we would keep on adding to it and adding to it to build it. But he put 500 million dollars in. At our Staples headquarters, we had old second-hand furniture, the board chairs that we sat in were Norgahide (?) chairs - you sunk so deeply in them, they were these used things, you had to be athletic to get out of them. Our headquarters was in the back of an old shopping mall. Solindra headquarters was this huge Taj Mahal-like building: big glass walls with all these big executives looking out over the countryside. That's what happens when government practices capitalism. Oh and by the way, you know Solinda's bankrupt - Staples has 90,000 employees. (CHEERS) 08:52:15: "Crony capitalism also led to something called Enter 1 which is a battery company, they put 100 million dollars into that, that's also bankrupt. And then they gave General Motors to the UAW because the UAW supported Barack Obama and then they appointed labor stooges to be on the board of the National Labor Relations Board. And they in turn said that South Carolina couldn't have a Boeing factory because it's a right to work state. This is crony capitalism, it's wrong, I will restore free market enterprise to our markets in America." (CHEERS) 08:52:55: "I think our President believes that the other nations of the world are getting stronger and stronger and that we should have to accomodate a world where America is no longer the undisputed heavyweight on the planet. You'll recall in his campaign promises of 3 years ago he said he was going to meet with Castro and Ahmendinijad and Kim Jong-Il at the time and some of the world's worst actors and that didn't work out so well. They weren't interested in meeting anyway. I actually think that in some cases he's treated our enemies more favorably than he's treated our friends." 08:53:35: "My view is: American strength is essential to the world, essential for us, and we should stand by our allies and our friends like Israel and all the other nations that have been with us. Committing our futures together." (CHEERS) 08:53:50: "This President would take us down a path, he would take us down a path that would weaken our military. He just announced, just a few days ago, that he will cut military spending by almost a half a trillion dollars over this decade and let me put that in context, do you realize that our Navy is already smaller than at any time since 1917? And that our Air Force is older and smaller than any time since it's founding in 1947? And of course our active-duty personnel have been pulled back and forth to multiple rotations to Iraq and now to Afghanistan, stretched to the breaking point. And yet even in that circumstance he wants to cut military spending and cut our military capability." "Ever since FDR we have had as a national policy enough military strength to fight two wars at once. Not that we want to, but we want to have such strength that no one would ever think of testing us. This President, first since FDR, has said 'no, we're going to go down to only fight one war at a time.' Now is this because the world has become safer? (SHOUTS OF 'NO') "No - of course not. Whether it's the change in leadership in North Korea. Whether it's China insisting that they have control and ownership of the South Chinese sea, where by the way almost half of the world's trade travels. Or whether it's what's happening in Pakistan or the Arab Spring or Iran about to become nuclear - the world is not safer. And yet the President is cutting back on our military capacity." 03:55:27: "My view is, don't take that course. Instead increase our ship building from 9 to 15 a year, have 11 aircraft carrier battle groups, as we have had in the past, make sure that we modernize our (VIDEO CUTS OUT AT 08:55:40) (VIDEO BEGINS AGAIN AT 09:05:45) "Airforce - add 100,000 troops to our active personnel and finally give the Veterans in this country the care that they deserve." (CHEERS) 09:06:20: "I believe in a strong Ameican military and I believe that American strength is the best source of peace for us and for the planet. I believe in American strength, American resolve, I believe in standing with our allies, and I believe that we must return to the principles that made America strong if we're going to get people back to work, get people in homes with rising incomes again, that's not to have the government run our country but instead have free people choosing their path in life, keeping America strong and great." (CHEERS) 09:07:00: "You know, the President says that he wants to fundamentally transform America. I don't want to transform America into something I wouldn't recognize, I want to restore to America the principles that made us the hope of the Earth and those principles include those that were written in the Declaration of Independence where the founders said that we were endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights, among them life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We would be free in this country to pursue happiness as we choose, not based upon the circumstance of our birth or the place of our birth, not based upon the will of government but instead based upon the will of individual citizens." "And so we, by virtue or our hard work, our risk-taking, our education, maybe a little good luck and our dreams, could choose our path in life. And fortunately some people were so extraordinarily successful, they helped lift our economy and made us all better off, that's been the nature of America's story." "I don't want to change that into something else, which is more like an entitlement state. The way that President Obama is taking us, a European-style social welfare state where government sees its job as taking from some people to give to others. That's the wrong course for America, I want to keep America a place of opportunity where people pursue their dreams." (CHEERS) 09:08:35: "I love the hymns of America, I love our national anthem, I love the fact that we're the only people on Earth who place our hand over our heart during the playing of the National Anthem. I also love a song known as America the beautiful. O beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain, for purple mountain's majesty across the fruited plain. My parents took me on a trip when I was a kid, more than one trip. We were raised in Michigan, it's a beautiful state with the Great Lakes, but they wanted us to see Cypress Gardens here and go across the American West and see the canyones and the mountains and the oceans and the sequoias and so forth, I fell in love with the land of America just as a young boy my parents drove me around in their Rambler." (LAUGHTER) 09:09:25: "It's a miracle it made it, you know that? (LAUGHTER) "There's another verse I love which describes another reason why I have a passion for this country: o beautiful for heroes, proved in liberating strife, who more themself their country loved, and mercy more than life. All thsoe who are Veterans or members of the Armed Services please raise your hand - (MANY RAISE HANDS) "Wow - thank you, thank you, thank you Sir, thanks Ma'am, Sir, thank you." 09:10:04: "What a people, and there's one more verse that sometimes doesn't get mentioned too often: 'O beautiful for Patriot dream, that sees beyond the years'. The founders, in writing the Declaration of Independence, and crafting the Constitution, established documents that were not just for their time but saw beyond the years - even to ours and beyond. I believe that with all the challenges that we face right now, the course for America should not be to look abroad for new ideas, our friends the Wall Street occupiers who want to change America somehow and find a different system, that's not the source of American greatness. The right course for America is to restore the principles that made us the hope of the earth, to turn back to our respect for life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness." "I would restore those principles in America. I will use all of my energy and passion to keep America strong, to stand with our friends, to restore values to our families, to assure that people have great education, great skills, and the opportunity to fulfill their dreams. I love this country for what it is, for the people who are here, for its rocks and rills (?) and templed hills - I love America. And I will keep America the hope of the earth, the strength of the earth, and a great salvation to many people who want to find freedom - this is the land, this is the place which is an exceptional land, we're not just another place with a flag, we're a place where freedom rings, I will keep it strong, I will keep America strong, get us back to work, and keep us the 'shining city on the hill'. Thank guys (CHEERS) Great to see you!"
