I was looking for a great picture to put on this blog post. One that would create hopeful feelings in the viewer.
I didn't find anything I could use, but I did find a hopeful picture I couldn't use.
I've written a lot of opinionated blog posts, so today I wanted to post something completely uncontroversial.

America (meaning the USA) has long held the attitude that we are the greatest nation on earth. This idea has incited emotions ranging from anger and shame to pride and patriotism.

I don't know the answer, but I do know this...
I write about, with, for, and around kids all day. (Well, maybe I do the dishes too. Sometimes.)
