This collection of stories from around the United States illustrates why this nation is the strongest, most compassionate, generous, and diverse country that has ever existed.  The stories are mostly of individuals and are organized by state. 

It’s hard not to find a topic that this country does not eclipse all others.  Examples include compassion, generosity, music, food, National Parks, higher education, freedoms, handicap accessible, interstate highways, medicine, technology, computers, movies, opportunity, religion, and the list goes on.

Most of these stories have a wow moment, leaving you to wonder, “How did they do that?” 

If you have a recommendation for an uplifting story about a friend or relative, living or passed, that you believe will add to the theme, please email Quorvita.  The email address is available in the About link at the top of the page.

There is a cartoon at the start of each state with some hidden aspect applicable to that state.  See if you can find it.  If you have read the other sections, you probably know that humor is an element of JOY. It helps to suppress fear.
