Homework

Andrew Sullivan was born in England and has an immigrant’s love for the ideals of America. Sullivan draws his conviction straight from the Declaration of Independence in his anthem to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

I believe in life. I believe in treasuring it as a mystery that will never be fully understood as a  xx that should never be destroyed, as an invitation to experience now, what can be only be remembered tomorrow. I believe in its indivisibility in the intimate connection between the newest bud of spring and the flicker in the eye of a patient near death, between the athlete in his prime and the xx vet, between the fetus in the womb and the mother who bears another life in her own body.

I believe in liberty. I believe that when every soul lies the capacity to reach for its own good, that within every physical body, there endures an unalienable right to be free from coercion. I believe in a system of government that places that liberty at the center of its concerns, that enforces the law solely to protect that freedom, that side xx individual against the claims of family and tribe and church and nation, that sees innocence before guilt, and dignity before stigma. I believe in the right to own property, to maintain it against the benign suffocation of a government that would tax more and more of it way. I believe in freedom of speech, the right to offend and xx as well as the right to convert and bear witness. I believe that these freedoms are connected, the freedom of the fundamentalist and the atheist, the female and the male, the black and the Asian, the gay and the straight.

I believe in the pursuit of happiness, not its attainment nor its final definition but its pursuit. I believe in the journey not the arrival, in conversation not monologues, in multiple questions rather than any single answer. I believe in the struggle to remake ourselves, in challenge each other in the spirit of eternal forgiveness, in the awareness that none of us knows for sure what happiness truly is, but each of us knows the imperative to keep searching. I believe in the possibility of surprising joy, of serenity through pain, of homecoming through exile.

And I believe in a country that enshrines each of the three things, a country that offers nothing but the promise of being more fully human and never guarantees a success. In that constant failure to arrive, implied that the very beginning lies the possibility of a permanently fresh start and old xx, a way of revitalizing ourselves, our civilization in ways few foresaw and one day many will forget. But the point is now and the place is America.

Andrew Sullivan with his essay for This I Believe. Sullivan is a writer, commentator and blogger on political and social issues, and he has advocated for gay rights.
