Perhaps the true measure of American greatness is found on the back of our currency: e pluribus unum, or "out of many, one." This is a simple enough concept to understand, but one that takes on additional meaning in our globalized, cosmopolitan context. While we are many and varied in tongue, creed, confession, faith and life experience, we embody a shared humanity, one that eclipses our shared identity as Americans; we share a humanity that is not bound by race or color, or any other arbitrary wall-as-division. Our greatest greatness is not found in racial, religious or political tribalism, but rather, it is found in our inclusiveness — in our willingness to link our national and individual identities to the embrace of neighbor. Only when we can see others in ourselves, and we in them, can we begin the hard work of reconciliation and fulfilling the promise and potential of America's democratic ethos.
