A healthy and united America – perhaps a country more united than it has ever been – is truly possible, and it starts with us. John Kingston draws on wisdom from history, science, faith and culture, along with his own experiences, to offer eight principles for discovering purpose, meaning and true community.
Kingston breaks that down further into eight principles:
- You Have a Purpose: Believe It
- You Long For Renewal: Find More In Less
- You Will Face Adversity: Redeem It
- You Need People: Engage In Person
- You Are Not Alone: Share Your Highs And Lows
- We Are More Alike Than Different: Respond Instead Of React
- I Am You Are We: There Is No Them, There Is Only Us
- Together We Will Awaken America: Fulfilling Our Promise
Kingston offers analysis – and engaging stories of self-discovery – to underscore the strength of these eight principles to empower readers to build better lives. He makes no claim to be the creator of these principles, all timeless truths – merely someone who has spent the better part of his life trying to find the threads that knit us together and share that with the world.
