149. I have faith that at the end (1)

I have faith that at the end of the road I will see a people
with their confidence in God and with their lives filled with
spiritual significance and moral purpose.
I have faith in finding there a people
with greater confidence in themselves,
in finding each Puerto Rican
standing firmly on his own feet.
And I have this hope because I have faith
in God and in Puerto Rico.
[Words of Rafael Hernandez Colon,
Governor of Puerto Rico 1973-1977, 1985-1993]
