I had an idea in college that I thought would work.
I thought I could build a city that could handle the world.
It was the beginning of a series of cities that would become my most famous, most influential and most lasting.
I built a city in the suburbs of Minneapolis, the city that has become a symbol of American ingenuity and entrepreneurship.
Its not just a place to eat and drink.
It’s also the cradle of the modern American dream.
The place that inspired my children, a place where they could walk the streets without fear of violence, where I could walk through my neighborhood, and where they would be taught to respect and protect the city and its inhabitants.
It is not a modern city.
I’ve never seen one, let alone a modern one.
But the Minneapolis community college has been around for almost 100 years.
It is the home of the university.
Its a beacon for innovation and progress.
Its the city of innovation, where the city, the state and the nation meet.
Its the place where I learned that the world is made up of diverse, interdependent beings, that our communities are made up, in part, of what we do with our minds, and that the most powerful people are the people who make that happen.
Its a place that inspires us all, that inspires our children.
And, in many ways, it is the place that holds up a mirror to the challenges that our times are bringing to our world.
For the first time in my life, I have the opportunity to live in the city I grew up in.
I have a family that I love, and a community that I care deeply about.
And in that city, I am a proud member of a city community that has always held me accountable for my actions and for what I have accomplished in my lifetime.
It has helped me to become an innovator and a role model for others.
I have a city to build.
A city that I want to be a part of, and one that has been a guiding light in my own life, for so many years.
I look forward to continuing my journey, to learning more and seeing the world in new ways.
And I look forward also to making a difference in the world as I look to build my legacy.
I’ve never had a better opportunity to take that next step than right now.
It will help me continue to learn and grow, and to become a better person, to build a community where the people of this city are respected and protected, and for all of us to have the chance to see the future in our own city.
I’m looking forward to having the opportunity, for the first and only time in this life, to walk down the street in a new city and have people stop and admire me for the things that I’ve built.
It makes me feel so good.
I can’t wait to show everyone what a real American city looks like.
