'1776' - Character Counts!

FOXNews.com - FNS w/ Chris Wallace - Transcript: Bestselling Author David McCullough
If you didn't see Fox News Sunday here's the transcript of Chris Wallace's interview with David McCollough on his new book '1776'.

Excerpt:

WALLACE: What lessons do you hope Americans take away from the events of 1776?

MCCULLOUGH: That character counts; that courage is contagious, infectious; that we do truly have rights, freedoms, noble ideals and ideas, worth fighting for; that democracy doesn't come easy, never has; that the war with the longest struggle in our whole history, except for Vietnam; that it was bloody, and people suffered, hardships were terrible, but they didn't give up.

The bolding is by me since I think his words are very significant to today.
