Musings>American Exceptionalism

People talk about this, on the one hand, as if all Americans are exceptional, and on the other hand, as if NO Americans are exceptional. Neither is true.

To me, American Exceptionalism means that projects and dreams that are impossible in other countries are entirely doable here, providing the dreamer has some drive and creativity. Sometimes the dreamer is a native-born American citizen, but often they are immigrants, who understood far more keenly the opportunity that awaits in America for those who dare to seek it. I offer five examples of this.

So, what's it going to be? Are you going to sit back and whine about how unfair life is (and it is!), or stand up and demolish every obstacle that stands between you and your goal? That's in you, if you dare! --- Randy Schuyler
