AMERICANS ARE SO LUCKY



As I watched this from Brazil, I could only think:

AMERICANS ARE SO LUCKY

So lucky to have a broad middle-class with a lifestyle that is rare.

So lucky to have excesses of weight and material things and stuff.

So lucky to have freedoms and opportunities that most people in the world only dream of having.

So lucky that, despite having made terrible mistakes...

So lucky that, despite all the failures and break-downs and crises...

So lucky to be blessed with a Presidential candidate like Barack Obama.

My prayer is that Americans may somehow feel more blessed than fearful and that on election day, and beyond, they will be able to return to the hard work of doing the right thing, again and again. "A better day will come" is a vision that we must make together.
