    diversity. Sure, there are xenophobes here, as I imagine there are everywhere. But I don't think there is a more diverse society than the US. And we do have the common value of "out of many, one." This does not mean that we are all alike, but that we can find our common humanity to bind us together as a society.

     At our best, we live up to our ideals. But just as none of us individually is the absolute best we can be, we as a society don't always  live up to our ideals. It is always a struggle to be our best, but the values embodied in our
    Declaration of Independence and Constitution give us a goal to strive for.
