‘A Time to Heal’     

      “President Gerald Ford, in his autobiography ‘A Time to Heal,’ recalled the impact of the bicentennial celebration: ‘Rarely in the history of the world had so many people turned out so spontaneously to express the love they felt for their country. Not a single incident marred our festival. The nation’s wounds had healed. We had regained our pride and rediscovered our faith, and in doing so, we had laid the foundation for a future that had to be filled with hope.’ Notably, Ford still paid a political price at the polls for his decision to pardon President Nixon for his role in the Watergate scandal. Americans did not confuse patriotism with political accountability. May ‘America 250’ likewise be a time for regaining pride in our past and rediscovering hope for the future, one built on an honest understanding of the words in the Declaration of Independence. May it be a time when Americans embrace the common bond we all share: not bloodlines or ethnicity but the founding documents that set forth a vision for a more perfect union.”
