As the world’s funniest late night host says, “It’s a great day for America.” When I meet some of the kids that I’m fortunate enough to tutor, I have to agree. As school starts again, summer become fall, and the Rays still may still stumble into the wildcard, why shouldn’t we feel a little bit optimistic about America?
As I sat with one of my tutoring students this week reading an American History textbook, I noticed that the author appeared to go out of his way to emphasize the shortcomings of our country.
We have fallen short of our ideals, but America is still a great country. A study of history should be balanced, so I was hoping that the textbook would tell both sides of the American story. We’re only on Chapter 2, so I’m still going to give the book a chance.
Regardless, it’s still a great day for America.
