Listen to this 'Talk of the Nation' topic

Ladies and gentlemen, our series continues...

On yesterday's program, Neal asked columnist Peggy Noonan, of The Wall Street Journal, to put this campaign and the upcoming presidential election into context. Today, we'll hear from Eboo Patel, founder and executive director of the Interfaith Youth Core, which "builds mutual respect and pluralism among young people from different religious traditions by empowering them to work together to serve others," and a regular contributor to On Faith, on which The Washington Post and Newsweek collaborate. You may have heard him last year, on Talk of The Nation, when he talked to us about his new book, recent released in paperback, Acts of Faith. He blogs regularly here.

Patel will tell us what this American moment means to him. What does it mean to you?
