The Summer 2018 issue of AMAC Advantage, the quarterly magazine of the Association of Mature American Citizens (“AMAC”), contains a compelling article entitled “Solidarity, Identity, and the American Dream: A Discussion on Immigration.”
In the article, writer Cole P. Zail urges that we “celebrate the fact that we have joined together and blended ourselves as a nation” and then Zail further states that “[in] the true spirit of ‘E pluribus unum’ we must practice this solidarity our past leaders spoke of, and not allow our nation to be weakened by descending into tribalization and balkanization. We must remember the importance of assimilation – this includes speaking English, having an established familiarity with American history and culture, and holding strong belief in the Constitution and rule of law. America’s Founding Fathers were wise; they knew that our national strength could be preserved through unity.”
Zail’s words in AMAC Advantage align perfectly with the mission of ProEnglish: to defend English’s historic role as America’s common, unifying language, and to persuade lawmakers to adopt English as the official language at all levels of government.
