Description: When the Constitution was drafted, a woman asked Ben Franklin what the founding
fathers had given America. He retorted, “A republic...if you can keep it.” America’s greatness cannot continue unless we embrace our own crucial role in living out what the founders entrusted to us, including our role as a “nation of nations.” We’ll talk with Eric Metaxas about how America is not a nation bound by ethnic identity, but rather by a radical and unprecedented idea of liberty and how we must reconnect to that idea before it’s too late.
