An Alternative Anthem

An Alternative Anthem

Bill C. Davis

The lyric that is haunting these red white and blue days is from a Simon and Garfunkel song that could be a national anthem. The lyric is “….all gone to look for America.” Or is it “...all come to look for America.” It works either way. America is a search you can arrive to or leave for. The essence and definition of America is elusive and varied but the pursuits America allows – the lessons learned as you comb all the aspects and promise of this Utopian innovation - is the point. Immigrants arrive and expatriates leave but all come and go to look for America.
