"Within the next ten years, America will experience a renaissance or a catastrophe. Something is going to happen to take us back to who we are," says author Marianne Williamson. Her energy is contagious. She tells us we can face life from two positions--simply reacting to our circumstances or becoming proactive in the service of a vision. "Our children need our commitment," Williamson says as she urges Americans to reinvolve themselves in social and political action. She points us toward a return to the political tenets of our founding fathers, pointing out that the principles on which America was founded are "powerful principles that can withstand almost any assault, except the one prevalent today--the diminished commitment of individuals to those principles."
