Owed to America
Please,name the exceptional things about America that make it great, as Norman Geras did in his weblog, and then compare your list to that of Norman. As for me, I have loved his priorities, though he doesnât mentionâamong many American heroesâthe one I would have named as the most ârepresentativeâ of the list. I am speaking of Ralph Waldo Emerson. Yet, I would have highly appreciated two more American âiconsâ in that company: Henry David Thoreau and Walt Whitman.
