Deval Patrick's Missing Paragraph

The new govenor of Massachusetts gave an inagural address today and talked about boats. I am copying that part of his speech and also the part he forgot to include, the last paragraph.

"America herself is an improbable journey. People have come to these shores from all over the world, in all manner of boats, and built from a wilderness one of the most remarkable societies in human history. We are most remarkable not just for our material accomplishments or military might, but because of the ideals to which we have dedicated ourselves. We have defined those ideals over time and through struggle as equality, opportunity and fair play – ideals about universal human dignity. For these, at the end of the day, we are the envy to the world.
