Overview

“[W]e are a nation of communities, of thousands and tens of thousands of ethnic, religious, social, business, labor union, neighborhood, regional and other organizations—all of them varied, voluntary and unique … a brilliant diversity spread like stars, like a thousand points of light in a broad and peaceful sky.”

George Bush, Aug. 18, 1988
