On American Identity, Diversity, and Common Ground


The anniversaries of the terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001,
and the signing of the Constitution on September 17, 1787, provide us an opportunity to
  • reflect upon who we are as Americans, 
  • examine our most fundamental values and principles and affirm our commitment
    to them, and 
  • evaluate progress toward the realization of American ideals and propose actions
    that might narrow the gap between these ideals and reality. 
 The following lessons are designed to accomplish these goals.
