Thoughtfully written

Today's United States are not the same as the ones generations past grew up to know and love. I am in my early thirties, and though I know America will retain her place as an economic and military power for the foreseeable future, I do sometimes wonder with some unease...
Today's United States are not the same as the ones generations past grew up to know and love. I am in my early thirties, and though I know America will retain her place as an economic and military power for the foreseeable future, I do sometimes wonder with some unease what American society will look like when my kids are my age.
Brokaw, a pillar in American news media, has delivered a compelling, honest, and thoughtfully written work that yearns for simpler days gone by but looks forward with optimism to a bright future - if we return to the values and ideals that made us great to begin with. I believe in America, I believe in her people, and I believe we can retain our status as a global leader in all facets of human endeavors.
