Many Creeds, One Country: An Amorphous American Identity

E Pluribus Unum — Out of Many, One — is inscribed on the Great Seal of the United States. But as much as there is that binds Americans there is that can divide them.

American identity is shifting: from what we look like, to where we worship, to who we love. It’s not surprising that for many, those changes have created a sense of anxiety. Some feel they are being left behind by a country they thought they knew. Others are excited to chart a new course, to take part in that dream that so many Americans aspire to.
