The process of transformation and redemption requires we see clearly, that a mirror is held up, and we all reach out to know ourselves. There are true warriors among us, steadfast for truth and clear-eyed, unremitting in their pursuit, unrelenting in their focus. The central premise, promise that is America, has yet to be realized. A nation founded on an ideal, even if only poorly and partially understood, is unique in our history as a species and presents the opportunity to take the real next great step forward.
