it was amazing

Dan Rather's new book, What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism (co-authored with Elliot Kirschner), is an extraordinary reflection on what is right (and wrong) with modern America. These are his personal reflections on the state of our political experiment, tempered by decades of observation, investigation and reportage. These essays should be read by every high school student in History, Civics or Government classes. My copy of this book will be shared far and wide and I can only hope that it will be included in any secondary curriculum.

If I were not retired from teaching 7th and 8th grade, I would include in my AVID classes a daily reading of each of these 16 essays. Thank you Dan Rather for such resilient "reflections" on what truly made America great and what can make American character actually great again.
