Colin Powell, in an interview, mentioned this inspiring image he saw in the Time magazine about a women at her 20 yr. old son's grave. He spoke about how any American should or could have the dream of one day being President, regardless of ethnicity, gender etc. This is what makes America a great place. This is really an advanced and open-minded level of thinking. It is this dream that allows America to be a place of innovation, hope and strength.
I end with an excerpt from the Declaration of Independence.
"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."
