The video plays excerpts, for example, from former president Ronald Reagan’s “We Are Americans” speech.

“…To believe that together, with God’s help, we can and will resolve the problems which now confront us. And after all, why shouldn’t we believe that? We are Americans,” Reagan said.

The video also shows President John F.Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas, President George W. Bush’s “I Can Hear You” speech after 9/11 and Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream Speech.”

“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up, live out the true meaning of its creed. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,” Martin Luther King Jr. said.
