First of all innovation, you are one of the reasons that I am so blessed to be living in America. I believe that the Revolutionary War was fought for freedom, but won through you. Patriot innovators such as Paul Revere (one if by land, two if by sea), George Washington (crossing the Delaware River), Francis Marion & Nathaniel Greene (using Guerrilla Warfare in the South) and the authors who wrote the Declaration of Independence, were all innovators. Innovation, you did not wear off after America gained independence either. The the airplane, the automobile, the telephone, the computer, the first men on the moon; these are just a fraction of your greatness that allowed America to become the largest market in the world.
With regards to you innovation, a teacher once told me, “Innovation either comes from a need that is in existence, or a need that you have created.”
