Preview of the earlier chapters:

Chapter 1

Carson grew up in Detroit and Boston when the civil rights movement was changing the

social landscape. He was aware of racism all around him. Carson belonged to a segment

of the population that was often deprived of opportunities. Rather than cause him to stop

fighting, racism inspired him to prove his worth by excelling in school.

America was built on a legacy of rebellion. Early Americans fought for change at great

personal risk. The Founding Fathers understood injustices that existed in the world and

strove to design a government that would level the playing field.

However, Americans appear to have lost the ability to endure hardship and to sacrifice

for future generations.

America’s current state, its growing debt, excessive spending, and elected leaders who

ignore the will of the people, closely resembles the circumstances preceding

the American Revolution. During that time, colonists were forced to rebel against

extreme taxation and threats to the freedoms they enjoyed in the New World. However,

modern Americans seem to have forgotten what their Founding Fathers sacrificed for the

privileges they continue to enjoy.
