America is going through an identity crisis. Many no longer look back at our history with a reverent eye, but with a critical one, questioning our history, principles, and values.

Others feel a sense of constant confusion. Coming from Somalia, a country steeped in its own disorder and unrest, I am alarmed to see this happening in the United States.

That is why I was so heartened to see the State Department publish a “Report of the Commission on Unalienable Rights.” The report attempts to address our crisis of confidence.
