The Illusion of Our Greatness

Recently I walked the early morning myst shrouded battlefield of Gettysburg. Silence, like the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier hushed the few of us striving to catch a glimpse of the past and a wisp of the future.  The grass was heavy with dew but our hearts were even heavier and broken for the loss this sacred battlefield inspired.

In the distance one could almost hear. “Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all mean are created equal.

Now we are engaged in great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure…………….

OUR GREATNESS LIES NOT

SO MUCH IN BEING ABLE

TO REMAKE THE WORLD,

AS IN BEING ABLE TOO

         REMAKE OURSELVES.-Gandhi

Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korea, Cold War, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq,?????

Can we remake ourselves and long endure?
