The more you know about the history of the USA, and humanity as a whole; the more grateful you become. Our country is the greatest in history in terms of wealth and power, but more so in terms of ideals and aspirations. Lately we have become hobbled in our pursuit of our potential because of increasing ignorance, tribalism, and small thinking. I am hopeful that the USA will emerge from this period triumphant and true to the highest ideals of mankind. I believe we have come this far by being number one in embracing truth. We must continue to pursue freedom by knowing the truth as A wise man advised. Happy Birthday America!
