Take a Moment

Fareed Zakaria, in an optimistic opinion piece about America for The Washington Post:

“The United States has problems. But unlike many other countries, it also has solutions. And since politicians won’t, citizens are increasingly finding ways to propose these solutions. That’s something to be thankful for — and hopeful about.”

My dad used to unabashedly call America the "greatest country in the world." It's reassuring to pause now and then and bring to mind a few of the reasons why he felt that way.
