2011 New Year's Speech

New Year's Speech

Given by His Excellency, President Kevin Baugh
February 3rd, 2011 XXXIV

My Fellow Molossians, Greetings.

The New Year is a time when we look back at the year passed and look forward to the year to come, with what wonder will bring. As we see the old year out, we remember its joyful and its sad moments, and live in the hope that next year will be happy and successful for all of us and for our nation. We are optimistic, but anxious because we live in a world where much that happens elsewhere can be felt here in Molossia and can have consequences for our country and for each of us. However, each of us has the strength of will and of character to face the challenges ahead and overcome them. We carry in our hearts a boundless optimism and will to succeed, strengths born of living in one of the tiniest countries on earth. Always in the past we have faced and overcome our trials, and used our limitless energy, initiative and imagination to build the mighty nation you see before you. Everything we do, we do for our children and for each other, to make sure that we are all healthy and successful, and the country we live in is safe, prosperous and happy.

And so we launch a new year, with its many trials and opportunities. Each brings the prospect of even greater accomplishments for our nation and for our people. I know that we can achieve anything that we put our minds to, individually and together as a nation. I am certain that this coming year will only bring greater glory to Molossia and the Molossian people. So, as this New Year begins, let us congratulate each other and wish each other love and happiness in the coming year. Let all our dreams come true.

God Bless You,
Long Live Molossia!
