I'm going to offer my evidence of moments of American greatness. And I'm going to ask those that read this thread to do the same.
I'm going to ask my detractors and antagonists (are you seeing this @fedupaton) to contribute as well, and will welcome from them both moments of greatness and moments of shame.
Because they did so, folks they did not know came to know freedom.
Do we have to go back a century to find American greatness?
Not at all.
