A Good Reflection For the First Anniversary

This is a particularly valuable time to reflect on oneself and on America, something I’ve been doing off and on for the past few days, even as I’ve been frantically getting ready for my first Anatomy exam tomorrow.

On Sept. 5, the Economist published an excellent article on Americans and Sept. 11. The magazine gets particular kudos for looking at the religious character of America, an extremely important aspect of our identity (G.K. Chesterton called America “a nation with the soul of a church”) that the media and academia consistently get wrong or neglect entirely. I found it very valuable as I reflected on myself and my country, and I hope you enjoy it today.
