For more than three hundred years, the United States of America has been about becoming the greatest nation in the world. This book explores the happenings, events, personalities, and ideologies that have played a role in this transformation. Throughout these writings the author shares her perceptions of the goodness in America and the deterioration of the values and morals once held sacred. So where does the nation go from here? The answer to this dilemma rests with the children. Hope is in the blueprint of a unique and innovative school experience designed to counter the impact of these losses and strengthen the heart of a civilized nation.
