I wish the world were different. If we were to try harder, if I were to try harder, it perhaps could be. I feel sad that our supposedly leading nation continues to discredit and ignore its own. Other nations glimpse the path to the future and note that the earth is dying, not only from polluting factors but from our terrible attitudes towards each other. If the United States refuses to protect and serve its own citizens with nation healthcare, environmental standards, rights for all, and a peaceful presence in the world, how can it call itself a great nation?
