  • Lincoln's "Gettysburg Address"--"That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, and for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
  • Walt Whitman's "For You 0 Democracy"--"I will plant companionship thick as trees along all the rivers of America, and along the shores of the great lakes, and all over the prairies . . ."
  • Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream"--"With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood."

My country, 'tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims' pride,
From every mountain-side
Let freedom ring.
--Samuel Francis Smith
