AMERICAN ADVERSITY


My name is Christopher Peter and welcome to the CRC Review. The CRC Review is your source for common sense commentary covering salient topics impacting our society and economy.

America celebrated its 244th year since declaring our independence from the United Kingdom of Great Britain. Americans should be proud to live in the United States. America affords opportunity, freedom, and self-determination as well as a cultural melting pot like nowhere else. Our nation is not perfect, but neither is any other one. Our perspective must not anchor solely on our flaws, but on our strengths and efforts to overcome our past mistakes. 

I am proud to be an American and live in the United States. I do not connect with those voices in our society attempting to use our past indiscretions as a divisive wedge for political purposes. Or a convenient cover for their perpetually failing political agendas. I rather look at the convenient facts. If America is so racist and discriminatory, why do so many people migrate here each year? Why hasn't any one of the people claiming offense left our borders? Because we know the good outweighs the bad and we are always hopeful for a brighter tomorrow. 

American life does not come without challenges. Each day Americans adapt to changes and challenges we did not ask for. Find ways to overcome adversity that we did not expect or plan for. Elevate our station in a life that we had no input in. American life is always built around hope and aspiring for a brighter future. A brighter future that we define for ourselves not given to us by a distant entity disconnected to our needs and wants. 

In this podcast, I discuss how we can build up from adversity, challenges that can get in the way, and the fragility of freedom. Additionally, I discuss recent current events. Please click above to experience American Adversity.
