2016 New Year's Speech

New Year's Speech

Given by His Excellency, President Kevin Baugh
8 February 2016 XXXIX

My Fellow Molossians, Greetings.

It is a new year, a time of renewal and promise. Indeed, our New Year, celebrated at the time of the Lunar New Year, already presages spring. Winter is still in control, but warm days and sunshine are just around the corner. It is time now to shake off the cold and move forward into the light. So it is with life in general and with our nation, of course. There are always times that try us, but such trials are only passing and we must always keep in mind the larger goal, making our world better and our nation a greater place. Each day is a step forward and as long as we move forward then we make progress. Molossians are a strong people and our nation is a growing and vibrant place. I never cease to be amazed at what we have accomplished as a people and as a country. This tiny plot of land, a mere speck on the earth, has already cast a mighty shadow on the world. Each of our steps make a difference, not only in our lives but even in the lives of others outside Molossia. We have done great things with our nation, and greater things lie in store for us yet. I might say now that we must keep working toward those greater things, but I do not need to, for we are already doing that. Each Molossian, in ways small and large, works toward the future every day. No exhortations are necessary, we already do what needs done to make our nation a better place, day by day. And I know, I am extremely confident, that we will continue to do so. Yes, our nation is indeed small, but the future is ours. It belongs to every one of us, each Molossian, a future of mighty accomplishments, of promise and of wonder, a future that is ours to seize and mold. We are a great nation, past and present, and it is an honor to stand with you as we stride toward that future.

God Bless You,
Long Live Molossia!
