No magic. Just hard, determined and responsible work.

There were lots of big ideas in the Barack Obama's inaugural speech but his message in my opinion is that there is no magic solution to the problems that face America and the world, just hard, determined and responsible work.

I highlighted below in the end of his speech the ideas that I found quite inspiring:

"America. In the face of our common dangers, in this winter of our hardship, let us remember these timeless words.

With hope and virtue, let us brave once more the icy currents, and endure what storms may come.

Let it be said by our children's children that
when we were tested we refused to let this journey end, that
we did not turn back nor did we falter;

and with eyes fixed on the horizon and God's grace upon us,
we carried forth that great gift of freedom and delivered it safely to future generations."
