One of the things I believe most Americans actually have agreement on is the sense of honor. We can see ourselves standing shoulder to shoulder with like minded people working to achieve a common goal. I believe a vast majority of Americans have a strong desire to be honorable and to achieve honorable things for their community and for the nation.
Look around you. Consider all the people you know. What are they trying to achieve in their lives? Most love their family, their community and their nation. Look around you. It does not matter what ethnicity, what age, what income, or what political party they belong to. They are all trying to achieve something more. They want something better. If they are struggling, they are more focused on their family and immediate needs. If they are doing a little better, they are more community focused. If they are doing a little better, they are more nationally focused. They are all trying to achieve something more. They want something better. We all want something a little better.
I believe in a gospel truth and believe very strongly that it is the core of the message of Jesus. It's best described in this song that is, in my humble opinion, the essence of honor.
