An old adage….
“I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers — and it was not there… in her fertile fields and boundless forests and it was not there… in her rich mines and her vast world commerce — and it was not there…. in her democratic Congress and her matchless Constitution — and it was not there. Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.”
