If we take a close look at American society during World War II, we find lost principles that need to be dusted off and put into use again: the basic principles of thrift and industry that allowed us to persevere, win the war and enter a period of extended prosperity.
“When the founders wrote about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, they didn't mean longer vacations and more comfortable hammocks. They meant the pursuit of learning. The pursuit of improvement and excellence. In hard work is happiness.”
David McCullough, historian
