All-America Cities Offer Hope
Amazing things are happening in communities across our country, and the All-America City awards program highlights some of the best. You can't help but come away from this event feeling patriotic and hopeful. Two quotes come to mind; first, from Bill Clinton: "There is nothing wrong with America that can't be fixed by what's right with America." And from Ronald Reagan: "Let us be shy no longer. Let us go to our strength. Let us offer hope. Let us tell the world that a new age is not only possible but probable."
