Still a Country That Makes Things

Manufacturing has been a part of our past and remains an important part of our present too.  If manufacturing as a segment of our economy were a country of its own, it would be the third largest economy in the world.

Manufacturing will be an important part of our future too.  We will remain a country that makes things.

My son, John, proves it.  At seven, he followed 2-D directions and assembled a motorized car with an erector set.

He wanted to make something.  He was motivated to make it.  He stretched his capabilities, but then showed he had the skill to make it.

As the United States remain the world's largest manufacturing economy, I proclaim manufacturing very much alive. 

I predict it will be for John's generation as well.
