2017 New Year's Speech

New Year's Speech

Given by His Excellency, President Kevin Baugh
28 January 2017 XL

My Fellow Molossians, Greetings.

2017 is a banner year indeed. This year heralds our 40th anniversary as a nation, four decades of sovereignty, of accomplishments, of triumphs and of growth. Four decades to take Molossia from a few scraps of paper - a few notes - to reality, a real, tangible nation. We have accomplished so much as a nation over the past forty years, beginning with a dream and an idea and culminating in the state we have today. To be sure, there have been setbacks and the struggle to move from vision to reality is ongoing. Molossia is small, compared to the giant nations dominating this planet, but our hearts are strong and our dream is powerful. We are not daunted by the task of building a nation nor by the obstacles before us. We endeavor daily and strive mightily forward to further our dream. At times this dream seems unobtainable, and our resolve may falter. But we always continue to move forward, always drawing that resolve from deep within our souls, knowing that our struggles are not in vain but are part and parcel of who we are and what we do. The steel within each of us could not be as strong without the setbacks that temper us. Victories and defeats go hand in hand in the creation of any invention and ours is a very special invention indeed. It is the establishment of our own nation, our own home upon this planet. No other goal can be as lofty yet we have risen to the challenge time and again. For forty years we have struggled and built, and the magnificent result lies before us all. An amazing nation, the most special on earth, Molossia. And the work continues. Having built this nation over the past four decades, we will not rest upon our laurels. The work is not done, and we are the people to continue it. Within all of us burns the unquenchable desire to make this nation the greatest on earth, and today, tomorrow and for the next forty years and beyond we will labor together to make and keep it that way. Molossia is the future and together we will work to make that future the utmost for all Molossians.

God Bless You,
Long Live Molossia!
