Abstract:

What's Right About America provides a fresh, lively take on the evolution of American values, and why they matter today more than ever. Rep. Granger is ideally suited to write a book that speaks to American ideals, and how this country strives-sometimes in fits and starts-to meet the high standards set by the Founding Fathers. A former teacher, Rep. Granger sits on both the House Defense Appropriations and Education Subcommittees. She's keenly aware that the threats and challenges we face abroad and at home make it imperative that young people in particular understand what makes the United States unique-and why that uniqueness is worth preserving. Each chapter of What's Right About America brings to life American values-compassion, responsibility, justice, and the belief in progress-as embodied in the stories of great Americans such as George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Neil Armstrong and Rosa Parks. Rep. Granger shows how their momentous actions brought out not just the best in themselves, but in others-though sometimes at a high cost.
