    This book is full of reflection on the many, many things that unite us as American’s, rather than divides us. I liked the flow of the book and I can almost hear Dan Rather speaking the words! While there are many issues facing us these days that can be divisive, it is nice to think that there are more ways that we are all working together for the greater good. It makes me hopeful for the future!

    This book is thought-provoking about what unites us when we often focus on what divides us. If you allow it, thus book will invite you into a conversation… Potentially with others who may or may not be like us.

    A great reflection from a reporter before social media. Dan Rather’s voice comes through each story, and I appreciate the short dedicated chapters. His vision to share What Unites Us with stories to remind us all of the common good is appreciated. This book has the potential to bring the US closer.

    As a rural engagement coordinator, I found Dan Rather’s “What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism” to be a profound exploration of American values. Rather’s reflections on patriotism, community, responsibility, and character align with my role in facilitating community events and making my organization more responsive to its surrounding community. His insights, drawn from decades of journalistic experience, offer an intimate view of history that is invaluable in my work. This book serves as a reminder of the principles that unite us as a nation and their importance in our communities. I highly recommend it to anyone, especially those working in community engagement.
