To fight fear act. To increase fear – wait put off postpone.
The vision that the founding fathers had of rule of law and equality before the law and no one above the law that is a very viable vision but instead of that we have quasi mob rule.
It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
I am also hugely excited to then be competing to defend my three Paralympic titles at the Paralympic Games. I believe we will see some amazing times posted and I am very much looking forward to what will be an incredible Olympics and Paralympics in London.
