Episode Summary

EDIT
Rebuilding a Resilient Nation
AIRED:
In The Edge of Disaster: Rebuilding a Resilient Nation with Stephen Flynn.Despite the devastation wrought by terrorists on 9/11 and by 2005's Hurricane Katrina, Stephen Flynn believes Americans are still in denial concerning how vulnerable our nation is to disasters, both natural and human-made. In The Edge of Disaster: Rebuilding a Resilient Nation, Flynn says acts of terror cannot always be prevented, and nature will continue to show its fury in unpredictable ways. Therefore, he argues that resiliency must now become our national motto. Resiliency can be gained by repairing and updating what has become an outdated and failing public infrastructure, from the public health system to the nation's dams.By tackling head-on the obstacles to resiliency that lie before us, Flynn believes we can remain true to our most important and endearing national trait: our sense of optimism about the future and our conviction that we can change it for the better for ourselves - and our children.moreless
