I know. I have traveled a bit, thanks to Uncle Sam. We are regarded as uncouth, arrogant, boisterous and not respectful of other cultures. I do not contest these perceptions. Yet, can you name another country that can claim immigrants from every other country on the planet? From Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, they clamor to live here. They lock themselves into a shipping container for two months as the ship crosses the ocean. They stow away in the non-pressurized in areas of aircraft. They cross miles of open desert on foot. They climb onto rafts that would have trouble in a calm lake and cross 90 miles of open ocean on them. We must be doing something right.
