Tonight during the State of the Union Address.
Is it all really worth it?
The travel and relationships with world leaders?
The nice clothes and fancy hotels?
The conversations with people who are only seen on the 6 O'Clock news.
The pressure to change the direction of human civilization, to improve peace in a region or give new chances to people on the other side of the world.
Is it worth it to be lied to by dictators, or to have to threaten a nation with violence? Then go home at night and eat popcorn and watch a movie?
Is it really worth all the pushing and struggle to get to the place where you are the international goto person for America?
Is it worth it, being the 67th United States Secretary of State?
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then I'm not sure it is.
