About the Book

Our Flag Yet Waves is a literary response to the last several years of political turmoil and controversy. Moved by the belief that fundamental American values are being tested and even threatened, Dr. David Heller thoughtfully delineates and discusses his perspective on these ideals as pillars of an Americana that must be protected and cherished -- now more than ever. While addressing such topics as patriotism, equality, inclusiveness, openness to change, American resiliency, unity despite diverse voices, and much more, Dr. Heller offers considerable food-for-thought about our current national debates and dramatic tensions. While addressing these and other pressing subjects, he presents numerous memorable insights, including the following: “The government that governs best governs with the least partiality and the greatest compassion,” “America is a colorful story of unfolding acts, authored across five centuries from immigrants from all the world.” “There is no America and no democracy without truth -- those truths that are self-evident and those that are not.” “America will never run out of statesmen; it’s just that more and more of those statesmen will be women.” “America is a mosaic of a thousand pieces. If you look closely with an open heart you will see that all of those pieces do indeed fit together.”
