    and I guess, so was I -- I was 5 when we came to the US for a better life.

    What's sad is, I live abroad for precisely the same reason.

    I don't mean in a material sense -- America is still the richest nation on Earth.

    Living in a developing country, my husband and I work twice as hard to make half the pay (though we're still better off than most people here).

    But culturally, if I'm going to feel like an outsider anyway, I figure I might as well do it in an actual foreign country.

    When I tell the truth, it is not for the sake of convincing those who do not know it, but for the sake of defending those that do. --William Blake
