It's the Fourth of July and as of this moment the nation stands. The United States of America has weathered many things in its long two hundred and forty-one years of history. The nation has done great things and done terrible things, but through it all was the promise that we'd do better. I hope we don't lose contact with that fundamental promise.
More important than any man, even a hero as ideal and noble and pure of heart as Steve Rogers, is the soul of the nation. A nation can spend much, can lose much, but it must never sacrifice its collective soul.
God bless America! God bless the world! God keep us all!
