Just a thought or two about our nation and it's current state...

We are a a magnificently beautiful and bountiful country and, by most standards, one of the greatest democratic/republics to ever exist. Our advances in science, education, and technology are legendary. Our military is the best in the world and our soldiers are great warriors.

But, in my view, as a nation we lack humility. Greatness includes a healthy dose of humility. Our nation is a nation of flaws and laws. Much of our country was built on the sweat and blood of slaves and slavery. Our country grew and expanded over the dead bodies of indigenous peoples. Women were not allowed to vote until 1920. Ours was a segregationist country until 1964. Just a reminder of who we were, who we became and, sadly, who we may return to being.
