sweet glorious books

Food for thought...

"America did not exist. Four centuries of work, bloodshed, loneliness and fear created this land. We built America and the process made us Americans. A new breed, rooted in all races, stained and tinted with all colors. A seeming ethnic anarchy. Then in of little time we became more alike than we were different. A new society, not great, but fitted by our very faults for greatness."

-John Steinbeck

And since it seems that most of America has never read it...

The Constitution.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union,
establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common
defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to
ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the
United States of America.
