"When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes... Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain."

Stand up, all victims of oppression,
For the tyrants fear your might!
Don't cling so hard to your possessions,
For you have nothing if you have no rights!
Let racist ignorance be ended,
For respect makes the empires fall!
Freedom is merely privilege extended,
Unless enjoyed by one and all.
'What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason, how infinite in faculty! In form and moving how express and admirable! In action how like an Angel, in apprehension how like a god! The beauty of the world! The paragon of animals! And yet to me, what is this quintessence of dust?

Thank you all for your kind words. Some of those kind words are from old friends, or names I recognize from my AARs, or writers whose work I appreciate. Others of you I don't know, but hope I will.
A Special Providence marks a watershed for me in that I think it is the best-planned and structured of my AARs to date. It grew as a side-note from a barely-begun novel and took on a life of its own when I realized I did not yet have the chops to write what I wanted. Perhaps I never shall, but Providence is my way of trying to develop those skills. The fact that Lincoln, Sherman, Grant and all the rest of the cast are terrific fun to write for is really just a bonus.
If I am a pillar of AARland, it is because other people gave of their time selflessly to make a place that I could belong. 'Thank you' would be too tame to express what I feel, but it is the only phrase I have.
So thank you - to Lord Durham for wisdom, to MrT for encouragement, to coz1, stnylan and Amric for friendship and truth, to Stuyvesant and GhostWriter for lessons in the fine art of commenting, to Draco Rexus, Storey and Rensselaer (I cannot spell that name) for their example. Here's a heartfelt thank you to Vann the Red, to J Passepartout, to Fulcrumvale and TheExecuter, whose frequent and perceptive comments have helped put the Special in Providence. To anyone I have left out I offer my deepest apologies... I do try to remember to thank the people I owe, but too often I fail.
Merrick, thank you for the nomination. I've been an admirer of your work since the beginning and I am honored to be your choice.
And thank you - most of all - to all of you who have ever left a comment as a token of your passing-by. Your comments make the AARs happen, folks - mine and everyone else's. Give the gift that keeps on giving... go tell someone you like their work, OK? Think of it as kAARma.
By the way, there are now TWO new updates to Providence. I hope you enjoy them!
Great speech! I think i will check out Special Providence, just always looked to big and daunting to catch up with, but it looks like it will be worth the effort
Very good speech, Director.
