Acknowledgments

We would like to thank Donald Duck for inspiring us of this idea to “Walk on Water”.

Furthermore, we would like to thank BHP Billiton for sponsoring the competition we find ourselves in.

  “Paddle, Paddle, Quack, Quack. Let’s float on water!”

            (Donald Duck, who didn’t really make the quote, but nevertheless inspired us in our Modular Floating Bridge design)

  “My dream is of a place and a time where America will once again be seen as the last best hope of earth.”

            (Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States)

  “Speak out … for the rights of the destitute. Speak out … defend the rights of the poor and needy.”

            (Proverbs 31:8-9, King Solomon, son of King David)

  “Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”

            (Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States)

  “You can find Calcutta anywhere in the world. You only need two eyes to see. Everywhere in the world there are people that are not loved, people that are not wanted nor desired, and people that no one will help, people that are pushed away or forgotten. And this is the greatest poverty.”

            (Mother Teresa, Roman Catholic nun)

  “This country will not be a good place for any of us to live in unless we make it a good place for all of us to live in.

             (Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States)

  “… Let us love, not just in word or speech, but in truth and action.”

            (I John 3:18, John the Evangelist)

  “To do more for the world than the world does for you – that is success.”

             (Henry Ford, Founder of the Ford Motor Company)

  “You get the Best of Both Worlds.”

            (Hannah Montana; we thought, if a tween like her can, why can’t the people of the Tonle Sap, Cambodia?)

Selah.
