Many events in American democracy deserve reflection. Some — such as the Kent State shootings and the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki — point to America's long shadow and call us to reconsider our actions. Others — such as Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech, the first lunar landing, and the 19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote — underscore commendable values like equality, courage, resilience, and teamwork that we, too, can emulate.
