If you are the type of person who loves to survey the arena of politics, history, pop-culture, economics and technology coalesced as one, then the book Century Turns: New Fears, New Hopes by William J. Bennett is for you. The book tackles the decades between 1988 and 2008 that America had gone through and the obstacles the country still has to face in the coming years.
The information you get from reading this book is massive – from the Clinton era to the election of George W. Bush. It dealt with areas of terrorism and peace inside and outside the U.S, and covers the politics of war during G.W. Bush’s reign. The short passages of those lives lost in the September 11 attack are quite touching [p. 159].
There is the story of Father Mychal Judge, the chaplain for the New York Fire City Department who was killed inside the tower after giving last rites to a fireman. In his pocket was a prayer he had composed and would often hand out:
Lord, take me where you want me to go;
Let me meet who you want me to meet;
Tell me what you want me to say, and keep me out of your way.
Where is America’s politics going? Will there be an end game to war and conflict in the near future? Read the “Century Turns New Fears, New Hopes” for answers.
