No way out and no where to go."

That's how much they hate us."

    The enemy is fear.
    The enemy is ignorance.
    The enemy is the one who tells you that you must hate that which is different.
    Because in the end, that hate will turn on you and that same hate will destroy you.

We stumbled at the death of the president, the war, and on and on. And when you stumble a lot, you .. you start looking at your feet. We have to make people .. lift their eyes back to the horizon and see the line of ancestors behind us saying, 'Make my life have meaning.' And to our inheritors before us saying, 'Create the world we will live in.' I mean, we're not just holding jobs and having dinner. We are in the process of building the future. That's what Babylon 5 is all about. Only by making people understand that can we hope to create a better world for ourselves and our posterity."

But they did it because Sheridan told them to do it, and because it was right."
