"Our Country is the Great Experiment. We are a mirror to the world. We reflect every shade of flesh, every hope and dream, every faith and tongue, every belief and philosophy found on this earth. Our Country encompasses the entire human spectacle, from the bestial to the noble, from the grim to the grand, from the prosaic to the mythic, from the real to the surreal, from the bleak to the beautiful, from the forgotten to the remembered. If all of mankind were to dream the same dream this country would be that dream. It is this panoply that gives us our inordinate strength while it creates for us our greatest burden.Today we celebrate the birth of that dream and our commitment to it." ~ Lewis
