The Heart of Our America is Dying
America, the heart of our country is dying!
We are all rattled by the rancor and failure of our government.
America promises liberty and justice for all.
But our leaders are not living up to that pledge.
Over the past couple of months, I’ve found myself dreaming about the extraordinary drama of the fall of 1787, 232 years ago.
Members of the Constitutional Convention debated, wrote, and signed the Constitution, proposing an entirely new form of government.
It’s awe-inspiring to imagine the individuals from across the 13 colonies — from Massachusetts to North Carolina — who came together in Philadelphia, my hometown.
