Every single American affects the moral face / direction of our nation. But some of them stand out – or above – their fellow citizens. Special contributions to art or science; pronounced aggression in politics or education; talent in sports or inventions all cause some people to change America more than others. But who have those people been?
100 People Who Changed America provides a list of the people its authors feel have most changed America along with short biographies of those people. While I agreed with most of their selections, I did not always agree with the light in which the selections were portrayed (i.e. Susan B. Anthony, Oprah Winfrey, and Franklin D. Roosevelt have all changed America, but not necessarily in positive ways).
Anyway, did you know…
Conclusion. Although not from a Christian perspective, 100 People provides an interesting ‘fly-by’ look at the progressive nature of the last two centuries.
