America is currently the most religiously diverse nation in the world. We honor the divine in mosques, churches, synagogues, temples -we are a multi-cultural, multi-religious nation - but do we know our own land - do we honor the founding vision of our country-our land's spiritual heritage and its many manifestations: The American Indian, the vision of the Mayflower Pilgrim, the Founding Fathers, the Transcendentalist, the Mormon, the Quaker, our Freedom Documents? Who are we? What are we?
Do we bring our gifts to the party? Do we even know what our gifts are? In the eyes of every mother and father in the world America stands for abundance and freedom for their children - are we bringing true freedom and wealth to the world? To our own children?
Can we each "go within" and perhaps discover the missing pieces that might allow humanity to lay down the weapons of war and walk in beauty and in alignment with the love that lies deep within our hearts and drives all that is? Is America carrying something that is yet to be "discovered" which will show the way to a solution to the current dilemmas that face humanity?
