Answering Americas Call. The Role Of America Today

- -Throughout the history of America there have been several different answers to her call. Every different time period has had it's own call, from the days of Jefferson and the Constitution, to the days of Kennedy and the Vietnam conflict. What is this generation's call?

With computers and the viruses that go with them, people can destroy the economies of whole countries without wasting a single American life. Countries can crumble with the push of a few simple buttons on a keyboard. But to understand all of this new technology requires a great deal of knowledge.

No longer can America turn to just anyone off the street to help the country. So with this in mind, we strive to answer Americas call, education. When forming the government, it was feared people would not be smart enough to understand the rights and privileges granted to them; people now should be as equally concerned. Not that the government will not survive, but...
