And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here.”

    “For we must consider that we shall be as a city upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us. So that if we shall deal falsely with our God in this work we have undertaken, and so cause Him to withdraw His present help from us, we shall be made a story and a by-word through the world.”

    Therefore, this is the ultimate aim of American exceptionalism.

    Very well described. I would like to visit such a city
