Question?

“What does it mean

to be an

American?”

slide3

“Yet America is a poem in our

eyes; its ample geography

dazzles the imagination, and

it will not wait long for metres”. 

~Ralph Waldo

Emerson

slide4

“A man's country is not a

certain area of land, of

mountains, rivers, and woods,

but it is a principle; and

patriotism is loyalty to that

principle.”

~George William Curtis

slide5

“America is an enormous

frosted cupcake in the middle

of millions of starving people.

~Mr. Vandervort

“Europe was created

by history. America was

created by philosophy.”

--Margaret Thatcher

"Wherever the standard

of freedom and independence

has been or shall be unfurled,

there will be America's heart.

She is the well-wisher to the

freedom and independence

of all. She is the champion

and vindicator of her own."

John Adams:

“We hold these truths to be

self-evident, that all men are

created equal. That they are

endowed by their Creator with

certain unalienable rights; that

among these are life, liberty, and

the pursuit of happiness . . .” –

The Declaration of Independence

(Jefferson)

slide9

"A nation which does not remember what it was yesterday, does not know

what it is today, nor what it is trying to do. We are trying to do a futile

thing if we do not know where we

have come from or what we have

been about." - Woodrow Wilson
