Rescue America

Our Best America Is Only One Generation Away

Chris Salamone & Professor Gilbert Morris


America's founding values and the leadership traits that embodied them gave rise to the greatest nation on earth. Their attractive power enticed millions of immigrants to leave the comforts and security of their homelands for the promise of hope, opportunity, and a liberty the world had never known. They also unleashed an entrepreneurial spirit that created unparalleled prosperity and spawned the greatest generosity ever exhibited by a nation or its citizens.

Upon this irrefutable premise, Rescue America creates clear and specific connections between the loss of our founding values and the current political, economic, and cultural problems. What is necessary, the book asserts, is a fundamental shift back toward a national embodiment of the three primary leadership qualities that sustain all lasting human institutions: gratitude, personal responsibility, and sacrifice. It is through the resurrection of these essential qualities in every American—and a rejection of the pervasive attitude of entitlement and culture of complaint—that the spirit of America will once again empower its citizens and inspire the world.
