Will the Real America Please Stand Up?
How the Spiritual Foundations of America Can Restore our Country to Greatness
America has never really been about Americans. It has always been about the “tired,” the “poor,” the “huddled masses” of the rest of the world that yearns to be free. For four centuries, they have moved here to escape oppressive tyrrany, to worship without compulsion and to flee the bondage of poverty. America is about those people – the refugees of every culture and nation on earth. It is about the world and it is about freedom.
It is no small thing to be a citizen of the greatest nation on earth. It means adherance to the principles upon which this nation is founded. The principles, so often illustrated in the lives of our founding fathers and in the history of the nation, are as valid today as ever. But living in the freedom and the individual rights that we have also means that we live with the responsibilities of those freedoms.
