The idea of someone being an expert in something is almost comically easy to understand, but what exactly does being a great American mean? To quote Paul Simon, “One of the great pleasures of being a good American is that you might find out what an American is.” Well, apparently, it means a lot more than Paul Simon might realize.
Diane Rehm has taken the time to write a book entitled, “The American Dream in One Hour.” It is a guide to finding what it is that makes America great. I would say it is a much better guide than the one on the site I mentioned above.
I’m not going to spoil all of the fun of The American Dream in One Hour here, but I do want to touch on two things that come up frequently in the book. First, it’s not merely about what we Americans have as a national identity. It’s about what makes us Americans, which is a combination of things going on at the societal level and things going on at the individual level.
America’s greatness comes from a variety of elements. There is the hard work of our founders and our current leaders. There is the diversity of American culture. There is the creativity and the innovation of American industry.
Each of these things has been given their own name. But they do have one thing in common: They come from Americans.
Americans are a unique breed of person who have adopted the American way of life. That America was founded by Americans. We are also the most patriotic people in the world, and in the last several years we’ve been seen more than ever before. We are the people who are willing to put a gun to their head and sacrifice their lives for our country. We are the people who are willing to stand up to bullies and take on the oppressive society in which we live.
One of the most common complaints about American culture is its lack of love. In fact, the word “love” is something we hear all the time. We also talk about love being a universal emotion, regardless of race, religion, or gender. But what is love? And what does it mean to be a part of American culture and community? I’m here to help you answer these questions.
