“This new world hath been the asylum for the persecuted lovers of civil and religious liberty from EVERY PART of Europe. Hither have they fled, not from the tender embraces of the mother, but from the cruelty of the monster; and it is so far true of England, that the same tyranny which drove the first emigrants from home, pursues their descendants still.” Thomas Paine – Common Sense
My daughter listened to the Kennedy – Nixon debate on Youtube last weekend, and you might be surprised to hear her first reaction. “Mom, no one was apologizing for America.” There are so many negative characterizations of our country, apologies for past events, and microscopic examination of the lives of our great leaders, that we forget what an amazing nation we live in. We also forget how such behavior was not commonplace in the not so distant past.
Take a moment today to create your own What Is Right With America list. I am thankful for living in a country where I am free to help others recall what is amazing about its past! I hope you will share your list here with others!
