Probably the biggest take-away is this reality that I've never acknowledged: the United States is a guardian of conscience. Wow. True, I've always been aware of the variety of churches, synogogues, etc., but I always considered that a personal issue or a family issue. But I now realize it's much broader than that. It's hard to imagine, e.g., if we lost WWII and we were all speaking German and had to adopt whatever religion the Nazis would allow. What would our nation's conscience look like under Nazi rule? Hard to imagine.
