    I don't want to give my name either---and I'm a U.S. citizen!

    You've already given a great deal to this country and it pains me to read your last sentence.  But it's entirely reasonable, unfortunately.

    Again, thanks for taking the time to tell your story here.

      I don't know how long it takes to "forget" this administration's deeds. It's hard to forget and harder to forgive. I am good in first and do my best to be as good in the latter. I just don't know how willing others are to do the same. People have long memories and a lot of patience in other cultures to dig out their "open bills and get them settled".

      In the end I am an optimist though I don't sound like one. But I know everything has an end, even the worst things and it's just a matter of time.

        My wife is currently writing her dissertation on the literature produced by 2nd generation decendents of the Spanish Civil War and it's amazing how long people hold grudges and how current Spanish politics is completely held within the thrall of the generations-old battles and competing claims of victimization.

        I suppose the fabled shortness of the typical American's attention span could prove an unexpected benefit here.  Of course, that same factor could set the stage for the same thing to happen again in another generation!
