Vincent Harding on American Potential
Vincent Harding, writing in America Will Be!: Conversations on Hope, Freedom, and Democracy, co-authored with Daisaku Ikeda, observes:
"Let me say this with a slight bit of humor as well as something deeper: It's a way of testing the wisdom of God for making such a strange variety of beings, giving them the capacities that we have, and telling them to get together and figure out how to live together, how to love one another, how to share, and how to bless one another and bless this world. I think of this as a reflection on America's potential."
