AND RECONCILING APPROACHES TO OUR COMMON LIFE. WE GIVE THANKS FOR THE MANY ASSETS AND STRENGTHS OF THOSE WHO LIVE AND WORK IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY. WE ESPECIALLY GIVE THANKS FOR THE DEDICATION AND COMMITMENT OF THE SUPERVISORS WHO SERVE ALL PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTY. AT THE SAME TIME, WE REMEMBER AND LIFT UP THE BROKENNESS OF MANY PEOPLE WHO LIVE HERE, OUR NEIGHBORS WHO WANT WHAT WE ALL WANT, TO BE TREATED WITH DIGNITY AND RESPECT, TO HAVE JOBS AND HOUSING THAT WILL SUSTAIN US, TO ASSURE THAT OUR CHILDREN ARE WELL EDUCATED, TO EXPERIENCE SAFETY AND SECURITY IN OUR COMMUNITIES. MAY WE NEVER SEEK TO FULFILL OUR OWN INTERESTS AT THE EXPENSE OF THOSE ON THE MARGINS. IN ALL THAT IS SAID AND DONE HERE TODAY IN THIS CHAMBER, MAY WE REMEMBER THAT EXEMPLARY LEADERSHIP MEANS BOTH BEARING WITNESS TO OUR COMMON VISION AND SERVING CONSTITUENTS WITH COMPASSION AND INTEGRITY. HELP US, O GOD, TO BE THE LEADERS THAT YOU HAVE CALLED US TO BE. MAY WE ALWAYS REMEMBER THE WORDS OF THE PROPHET MICAH WHO SAID, "WHAT DOES THE LORD REQUIRE OF YOU BUT THAT YOU DO JUSTICE, LOVE KINDNESS, AND WALK HUMBLY WITH YOUR GOD?" AMEN.

ERNEST L. HUGHES: PLEASE FACE THE FLAG, PLACE YOUR RIGHT HAND OVER YOUR HEART. [PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE RECITED.]

ERNEST L. HUGHES: PLEASE BE SEATED.
