Look at the end of this speech(just read words in caps):

"Let it be said by our children's CHILDREN that when we were tested we refused to let this journey end, that we did not turn back nor did we falter; and with eyes fixed on the horizon and GOD'S grace upon us, we carried forth that GREAT GIFT of freedom and DELIVERED it SAFELY to future generations."
