Where's The Money Tree?

"...And it is under this oak where Evangeline waited for her lover, Gabriel, who never came. This oak is in an immortal spot, made so by Longfellow's poem, but Evangeline is not the only one who has waited here in disappointment.

Where are the schools that you have waited for your children to have, that have never come? Where are the roads and the highways that you send your money to build, that are no neared now than ever before? Where are the institutions to care for the sick and disabled? Evangeline wept bitter tears in her disappointment, but it lasted through only one lifetime. Your tears in this country, around this oak, have lasted for generations. Give us the chance to dry the eyes of those who still weap here!"
