Response to libtodeath (Original post)

17. For me it came from my earliest education

From starting the morning with the Pledge on to very positively spun history studies and celebrations of American achievement. Any athletic events held a certain pomp and recital of the National Anthem. I felt like Audie Murphy when I toted that pigskin.
Maybe in the long run that style has created some monsters. I know I continually run into people who still envision history as it was taught to them in the 6th grade.
