Standing on their
heads they’re ready
On Saturday March 24, I march with America’s kids.
I march for their lives and I march to restore civilized
norms to our democracy, the use of reason and the rule
Tomorrow we march with the facts.
Tomorrow, I march with our kids.
Find a march near you: March for our Lives
As an American, I support a secular government that frees people of all faiths to worship as they please.
25,000 people gave their lives in the American Revolution to give birth to this freedom.
Our principles make us great; but only when we strive to practice them
Everyone who seeks freedom has place in the United States
Hear our prayer
We have sinned before Thee
Have compassion upon us and upon our children
Help us bring an end to pestilence, war, and famine
Cause all hate and oppression to vanish from the earth
Inscribe us for blessing in the Book Of Life
Let the new year be a good year for us

I’m an American; heir to the American Enlightenment
By abandoning English constitutionalism and creating a new republic based on the rights of the individual, the North Americans introduced a new force in the world. Ideas spread most rapidly when they have found adequate concrete expression. Thus republicanism entered our Romanic/Germanic world… Up to this point, the conviction had prevailed in Europe that monarchy best served the interests of the nation. Now the idea spread that the nation should govern itself. But only after a state had actually been formed on the basis of the theory of representation did the full significance of this idea become clear. All later revolutionary movements have this same goal… This was the complete reversal of a principle. Until then, a king who ruled by the grace of God had been the center around which everything turned. Now the idea emerged that power should come from below... These two principles are like two opposite poles, and it is the conflict between them that determines the course of the modern world.
