US Daily Review: America, Home of the Brave

America, the Home of the Brave?

Looking at the condition America is in today, one wonders if there is hope for the future of the once greatest nation on earth. With a plummeting stock market, the house market sinking further and further into the doldrums, energy and food prices skyrocketing, it could look dismal … if we don’t look to our history. Although our history is relatively young, it is rich with color, courage, endurance, and yes, even shame at times, but one that delivered the American dream for generation upon generation.

Through it all, even during the toughest times America has ever been through: The Revolutionary War, the crash of the national in the 1800’s, the Civil War, the Great Depression, WWI, WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the unrest and terrorist activity during the 70’s, the tanking economy under the Carter Administration, Americans held hostage, the attacks on American soil on 9/11, the subsequent wars, the downward spiraling economy and ever burgeoning federal government — one could surmise we are the most dismal nation on earth. But nothing, absolutely nothing, could be farther from the truth.
