A Nation at Risk
Conditions that Forged America Will Never be Seen Again

Thomas Paine
"These are the times that try men's souls."
The Fire of our Founding Fathers
    The United States is a world leader because of the unique conditions that forged it. A special geography, a special time, and a special people whose arrival on these pristine shores coincided with the birth of the Age of Reason.
    The fire that was lighted by our Founding Fathers, and kept alive by the sacrifice of brave souls, faces extinction by a flood of humanity with a dissimilar history and no memory of these things.
    These conditions will never be seen again, nor will the fire if it is ever extinguished. -- Glenn Spencer, Memorial Day, 2004 -- See Comments by Spencer
