Description
Roger Fortin has written a thought-provoking history of the Founding Fathers' ideals and America's promise. Being the core and essence of America's identity, the Founders' ideals can inspire individuals and the community to live more meaningfully and purposely, "one for all and all for one." As Professor John Fairfield points out in the Foreword, Fortin's book is "written in a joyful, hopeful, and inspirational tone. The book will resonate with individuals charting direction in their lives, from new graduates to retirees. Fortin finds inspiration for happiness in the Founders' ideals. He places those ideals at the center of what he and others call the American dream. In these troubled times, when divisions of class, race, gender, ethnicity, and partisanship threaten our tattered republic, Fortin brings hope and wisdom to the discussion.
