Ronald Reagan:"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.

American pride resonates with most segments of the population, though not with young adults, according to a new poll.

The poll found an almost identical percentage (35%) of the 18-24 group saying they are only slightly or not proud at all to be an American.
