What is Best in Americans
For all of my grumping, I know how truly blessed I am to have been born in these United States. As frustrated as I get with the state of the nation, the people themselves never cease to amaze me.
You did me the courtesy of listening to my grumblings about high taxes, high prices and the increasing presence of the "entitled" masses, and had the grace to realize that I was just letting off a little steam. Thank you for that. You are what is best in Americans.
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for offering to send your boxes of clothing to our family rather than an impersonal thrift store! I am humbled beyond measure. We are so alike, you and I. I would by far rather help someone personally than send my money to be disseminated by "the machine" that is our government.
Even when the darkness threatens to engulf us all, there are glimmers of light. You. Thank you.
