Today’s highly interesting read (10/25/19): Celebrate what’s right about America and our great history

Today’s read is from Bill Bennett, radio talk show host, former Secretary of Education and Drug Czar and a NY Times best-selling author. Here’s a portion:

Here’s an old-fashioned but much-needed proposal: Let’s not be shy about actually celebrating this country’s history and its greatness. Yes, study and understand the times we’ve failed, sometimes badly. But enough of this running down the country again and again. It’s tearing us apart.

How about if, in teaching American history, we start with President Abraham Lincoln’s great assertion that this country is the “last best hope of Earth”?
