Say it in Six: What Makes a Great Nation?
When you think about this country and electing a leader, which ideals are closest to your life and your heart?
As Election Day draws closer, there's plenty of partisan talk from candidates about which policies (and which political parties) could make this country shine.
But Washington talking points aside, we want to know from you, in just six words: what makes a great nation?
What is your utopian America? Which ideals connect most with your life? And which principles matter most to you when electing a leader?
Why six words? Well, it's a way to bring focus to ideas, starting with a book called Six Word Memoirs. And more recently, NPR's Michele Norris generated a discussion about race with a similar format. So why not apply it to what makes a great nation? Express yourself below. We'll read every response.
