Peggy Noonan's Wall Street Journal column has been must reading for thoughtful liberals and conservatives alike. Now she issues an urgent, heartfelt call for all Americans to support the next President. Because it is not the threats and challenges we face, but how we face them that defines us as a nation.

The terrible events of 9/11 brought us together in a way not seen since World War II. But the stresses and divisions of the Bush years have driven us apart to a point that is unhealthy and dangerous. Today, Noonan argues, the national mood has swung the other way and it is well past time for politicians to catch up. We long for leaders who can summon us to greatness and sacrifice, as they did in the long struggles against fascism and communism.

In this timely essay, written in the pamphleteering tradition of Tom Paine's Common Sense, Noonan reminds us that we must face our common challenges together—not by rising above partisanship, but by reaffirming what it means to be American.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pamela | 1/29/2014

    " Much called for in this age of constant political argumentative sentiment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenn | 1/26/2014

    " Excellent book. It was a quick read and Noonan gives several pertinent observations about our society. She also has a relevant call to action for our new president. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kierstin | 1/18/2014

    " I couldn't get through this book. It was too abstract and well graceful, when I was looking for a real call to action in regards to our country's current situation. I couldn't tolerate blame not being assessed where blame was due. Maybe it is the value of my home, maybe it is that every apartment complex in Elk Grove is government subsidized, maybe it is because CA is holding my income tax refund with a sort of IOU. Patriotic grace...ha!! We need patriotic indignation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison | 12/22/2013

    " I think a valid point, especially now that we are beginning to see the fallout she talks about but also ramply and sometimes wandering and not very moderate in some ways. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn | 12/13/2013

    " Good and easy read for both Democrat and Republican! She makes the point that in government (as in life), we need to grow up and simply take responsibility for our actions. No matter whom leads us, please let that person be a grown up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 8/29/2013

    " I love her columns and I loved her book even more. Again, common sense is the theme here, oh how we lack it today, particulary in our leadership. An excellent read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 2/7/2013

    " Really thought provoking with specific recommendations to this country back on track. Highly recommend it for message. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 11/26/2012

    " as a matter of course, i don't generally agree with peggy noonan. and i don't agree with every part of this book. but she is an eloquent writer and makes many good points. a worthy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 11/14/2012

    " This book offered a meaningful perspective on the current state of our political matters in America, and offers wonderful insights about how we might change our tone to go forward with a better attitude. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ademide | 10/23/2012

    " I love Peggy Noonan and she's a beautiful writer. Next, I'd like to read her Reagan biography. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Genevieve Sharon | 8/10/2012

    " Peggy Noonan writes like an angel, she talks like an angel, she looks like an angel. Peggy Noonan is PATRIOTIC GRACE personified. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bebe Burnside | 2/13/2012

    " I liked the concept of us all trying to get along. However the author just can't forget she is a Regan republican and just can't help taking swipes at the democrats from time to time. I do think it is worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caryn | 2/6/2012

    " While I don't generally agree with Noonan's political leanings, this book gave me something to think about. Noonan brings to light fears that I think we all have about the future of the U.S. It's a quick read but one that leaves you thinking. "
