*State Senate poem, written by Jean McGivney Boese and entitled "Leadership":

:"It is easy to bend with the wind and be weak,:Wrapped in silence when it would take courage to speak,:To do nothing when crises demand that you act;:To prefer a delusion to unpleasant fact.:But the easy evasions that dreamers embrace:Are denied to a leader with problems to face.:He must cope with the world as he finds it, and plan:To make each hard decision as well as he can.:He can't hide from the truth or deny what is real.:Though a lie might assuage all the fears people feel.:For the truth is the truth, and no lie can prevail.:In a world that is real, one must face truth or fail."

:LL 155.5, 1999
