Travel Broadens – Not A New Concept
On the Melissa Harris-Perry show on MSNBC, a guest, Janny Scott made a very interesting statement regarding Barack Obama and his mother, regarding both of them having lived in New Guinea.
The world was a much more familiar place to them, than to many Americans.
Mrs. Chief and I have each live in two foreign countries. She lived in one country twice, one as a teen and once after we had three children.
Which is why I find the statement a little more profound than others might find it.
Both of us look at the world a whole lot differently than your average seventy-plus retired person. And I think that Ms. Scott nailed it. We have lived overseas. We have been able to see our country at arms-length. We have been able to compare it to our host country. We can see the positives of our country and we can also see the short comings.
