John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

In loathing the past, we darken our future, and cloud the genuine triumphs that have helped create the present.

There are plenty of periods throughout our country's history where it was great.  During the world wars come to mind off the bat, especially the second one.  Had it not been for us, considering ours was one of very few countries that did not see battle on its own soil, it allowed us to build a war machine with minimal complications.  Had the US not gotten involved, which was entirely inevitable due to how events played out, who knows how far Hitler would have gotten, much less Japan.
