I recognize the hand of providence in selecting this place.

I'm told in a Sunday school class I attended —

my son Tagg was teaching the class. He’s not here.

I look around to see. Of course he’s not here. He was in London.

He taught a class in which he was describing the concern

on the part of some of the Jews that left Egypt

to come to the promised land, that in the promised land

was down the River Nile, which would provide

the essential water they had enjoyed in Egypt.

They came here recognizing they must be relied upon,

themselves and the arm of God to provide rain from the sky.

--Mitt Romney
