Forgive me, all of you who are not “long-suffering Americans,” for sharing this, but it was sent my way a few minutes ago and I wanted to share it here. I happen to be one of those people who loves my country and believes it is (sadly) in the midst of a crisis of identity, philosophy and spirit. Who are we anyway? This speaks that issue in a Hollywood kinda way, but addresses well what I’m feeling. It should at least stir up some good responses.
