The New American Renaissance?

The history of American Architecture and the Arts--The American Renaissance--was the period from 1876 to 1917.

The American Renaissance came of age as an expression of a national spirit.


Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, a German writer and statesman, once said: "The decline of literature indicates the decline of a nation."


Some critics say authors failed to address major political issues during this period.


A bicentennial baby, I was born 100 years after the start of The American Renaissance.


​Next year will be 2017.  100 years after The American Renaissance ended.


What does this mean?


I'm not sure.


But I have a feeling we need a new movement in the United States, if not the world.  A return to basics.  A return to what is real.  A hunger for fairness and justice.  A celebration of the honest, hard-working men and women who help others and are glad to be alive.

Knowledge is power.  Words have power.  The power to change.
