Everyone seems to be talking aboutAmerica’s fall from greatness these days. Given the state of politics, this is understandable. I have to disagree,Americais still a great big family.
I found myself traveling Interstate 81 as Hurricane Irene was bearing down on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. As we traveled, we encountered convoys of utility crews fromMississippi,Tennessee, andKentuckyall heading northeast to be in position to jump on the anticipated massive power outages. As a family comes together in times of crisis, so do we as a nation. If this isn’t evidence of greatness, I don’t know what is.
Now if our politicians would put aside partisan ideologies and recognize that we are all Americans before we are liberal, conservatory, Republican, or Democrat.
