INDIVISIBLEThe winning motto "Indivisible" was chosen from more than 6,000 after fans submitted ideas via Twitter, according to the U.S. Soccer web site.
I'm particularly giddy about this evidence that so many fellow Americans, soccer fans, and U.S. Soccer passionately embrace the promise of unity enshrined in our Pledge of Allegiance.
A couple of years ago, when I asked myself what I am "for" in the immigration discussion - what it is I promote when I talk about immigrants - I came to the conclusion that the core value underneath it all is indivisibility. I wrote a piece calling indivisibility our American superpower, in September of last year, and I encourage you to read it: http://www.hispanicnashville.com/2010/09/indivisibility.html
The new U.S. Soccer motto is evidence to me that we Americans value our indivisibility. Don't ever think you're alone in cherishing, protecting and defending this precious American principle.
