The Really Good Life…so happy to be back home from the Middle East. Four years is a serious chunk of the life pie. Beyond the current political bickering and this uncertainty of inevitable change, America is a gift that i appreciate with all my heart.
The ability to get great blond highlights, to take my girls to the dog park and enjoy the trees and clean, safe green spaces, to buy a good bottle of wine for a good price (without showing my “Alcoholic Drinks License” proving that I’m a non-Muslim.Hmmm? Was I being vetted and profiled? As a guest in a foreign, Muslim country, of course I was. Their house, their rules) and share it hotel-chain poolside with other random travelers who truly want to talk civilly about current events.
America is good and God is Great. Jobs are coming back, and Americans have more than hope-we have pride.
