Description: Every generation of Americans has to fight for our democracy-the American dream of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness but the unraveling of the fabric of our society is choking our nation and undermining our freedoms. Action must be taken or more of our rights will slip through the cracks. The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were crafted to ensure and protect these rights and we must be a generation that reads, believes, and defends these crucial documents. Michel Faulkner, professional athlete, educator, minister, husband and father, reveals the grave challenges facing our nation from within and what can be done to recapture the greatness of America that has been dormant in its citizens. It’s time to remember the principles that made us great and help take our country back!
