God Bless America!


- The Declaration of Independence


   Happy Birthday to the United States of America!  And very much hoping that it truly is a case of " God Bless America."

  So while every country and every culture has made, and presumably will continue to make, contributions to the world, it remains the case - or at least is an aspiration for America to be, as Ronald Reagan phrased it "a shining city upon a hill"

   Or as Thomas Paine wrote in Common Sense in 1776: "The cause of America is in a great measure the cause of all mankind."     Common Sense

The 'city on the hill comment' dates back well before Reagan nicked it - 1630, John Winthrop, a puritan, referring to what would become Boston.
Just so's you know, not making any point... :-)
