Sargent Shriver on American Unity - Note for a lecture, "E Pluribus Unum? What Keeps the United States United"


"We have a statue of liberty on the east coast given to us by a foreign community. But we need a statue of unity built by all Americans, for all Americans -- in every American community. Today, our nation is not united. This country is in trouble because too many Americans prefer not to know each other. Not to care about each other. […] Our country cannot go on like this."
Sargent Shriver, August 20, 1967
