Key to this idea of exceptionalism are two ideals captured by our founding fathers and imbedded into our founding documents; The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. And these ideals are:. Liberty is the root and the polish that shines the precious gemstone that is America. And liberty births its twin — opportunity. These twin ideals have fueled the progress and success of this exceptional nation — nay, this exceptional civilization — in the years since its birth.

Multitudes have been drawn to our shores for one or both of these ideals. And some came to these shores not of their own choice but choices made by masters driven by motives contrary to liberty — contrary to opportunity. And many were driven to these shores from the oppressions in their home lands. We also see the protection, promotion and reclamation of liberty not only in America, but across the world.
Following the bitterly cold battle at the Chosin Reservoir in North Korea, , American troops were evacuated by sea, followed by the evacuation of , North Korean civilians who faced almost certain death at the hands of the North Korean forces. They could have been left behind. At the collapse of South Vietnam chaos ruled the day with millions of South Vietnamese trying to escape by whatever means.
Millions died in the attempts, and some — the lucky few — escaped the tyranny of the new communist government after facing almost certain death.
Humans in the midst of Inhumanity - Visky András in New York Part 1
June 6, marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Normandy and then the rest of captive Europe. The French at Normandy, 75 years later still celebrate their liberation with expressions of gratitude to their American, Canadian and British liberators. Were there abuses and wrong doings during these episodes showing ugly and tarnished facets of the gem? Of course there were, but those ugly facets dimmed in the bright light of the humanity seen in the midst of inhumanity.
My hope and prayer is that this nation — its citizens and its leaders — will fully embrace the freedoms our founders gave us to fully examine this precious gemstone called America. Liberation is well described in the pictures taken at the time, the faces of the liberators and faces of the liberated.
Here are a few:. The words of liberated French civilians captured in diaries and memoirs are a welcome change of scene from the horrors of the Nazi occupation. Here is from her introduction to her work:. And it comes with the simplest of gestures and the simplest of objects — an orange, a little boy, and an American soldier.
Gerard Rabiller remembers a precious orange given by a black soldier driving supplies to the front. I was standing on the sidewalk near my mother, who was chatting away, as do all the housewives of the world. On one side were all the empty trucks rolling down avenue de Paris toward the port; on the other were all the resupplied trucks, brimming with equipment as they set out for the far-away front. At that moment, the convoy traveling uphill was stopped right in front of me. I could see the driver of one of the trucks, a strapping fellow whose helmet nearly touched the roof of the cabin.
He was looking back at me, wide-eyed, his big smile revealing a set of sparkling white teeth. Still smiling, he waved hello to me. Then he started motioning to me!

His raspy voice was muffled, but I could hear bits and pieces. He seemed to grow impatient with my passivity, as if he wanted me to participate in the exchange. All of a sudden, he leaned forward and disappeared from my sight, reappearing after a few seconds. In his hand was a big yellow ball that he held out to me with an almost shy smile.
He clearly wanted to give it to me as a gift. Thank you, sir! It was wonderful! It was so big that I had to hold it in both hands! It shone like the sun through the clouds on an autumn day. I was hypnotized by the ball and its unfamiliar smell, which was both sour and sweet. My mistrustful demeanor had the GI in stitches to the point where he was slapping his knees with joy, as if he had just played a good joke on someone.
Then he calmed down and just smiled. Maybe giving me that gift made him think of another little boy who was waiting for him back in his country. And then, after one last glance, one last smile, and one last wave, my big black soldier started his truck back up and went back on his way with the others. It will be an occasion to remember the hundreds of thousands of Hungarian Jews who could not be saved, despite the heroic acts of Wallenberg.
It will also be a time for reflection. First, on the question of responsibility. However painful it might be, it is essential that we do not diminish the responsibility of those who were active perpetrators of inhumane acts. Equally, we must acknowledge the individual and collective responsibility of those who remained silent or turned their heads away.
