Adlai Stevenson II knew that people cannot live in isolation, that people across the globe are mutually dependent on one another. He valued CONNECTING with others.

He believed that Americans should pay attention to the needs of people in our own country as well as those in faraway lands. He dedicated himself to a life of public service in response to those needs.

Stevenson felt that the United Sates must neither separate itself nor impose its values on the rest of the world. Rather, the U.S. should serve as a model of a just and compassionate nation.
