Final thoughts from John McCain
We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all the corners of the globe.
We weaken it when we hide behind walls, rather than tear them down, when we doubt the power of our ideals, rather than trust them to be the great force for change they have always been.
I lived and died a proud American. We are citizens of the world’s greatest republic, a nation of ideals, not blood and soil.
Do not despair of our present difficulties but believe always in the promise and greatness of America, because nothing is inevitable here. The country will get through these challenging times.
