New Project: Septology - America Is

I've been quietly working on a new suite for my group, Septology, tentatively titled, America Is. This election season has helped to redefine America in so many ways, but at the core, the words we use to describe the best of what America is have not changed. Words like "freedom," "opportunity," "liberty," and "hope" come to mind, among many others. What is America to you, in one word? Please comment!
