if we want to make America great
I’m a liberal professor and my conservative students terrify me.
Jason McCormick

What does it mean to make America great?

There was once a war people called the Great War. Was it great because we wanted more of it? Was it a disappointment then that the Great War ended?

There was also a Great Plague. That killed 75,000 people. It must have been awful that the Great Plague ended.

Grandma’s apple pie recipe is great. We enjoyed it immensely, and everyone always asked for the recipe when they tasted it.

What then does it mean to be great? Is it necessarily good or desirable? Terrifying?
