  •  We Americans have much to be (2+ / 0-)

    ashamed of.  Our history is filled with shameful acts, shameful and wasteful ways of living, obscene consumerism, and we live in a dishonest and predatory social environment.  

    The US is a strange country.  I was raised on a family farm in Kentucky.  I have travelled all over the world while seving in the USAF.  I liked Europe the most.  There was honesty in the way the French, Belgian, Dutch and Italian people live their everyday lives.  Good food.  Good interaction with neighbors.  Respect for the elderly.  Love of education and languages.  Tremendous sense of history and a sophistication in terms of art and fashion and beauty and furnishings for the home.  Most of all, a graciousness.

    Thank you, teacherken.
