We've been brain washed to believe that the U.S. is the greatest country in the world, but that's just a fantasy that Americans want to believe.
It's a fantasy, unfortunately that our president also believes. My prayer is that Americans wake up, and let go of the need to be number 1.
Years ago, we were #1 in education, health, and many other areas. But that is no longer true.
What Americans need to do, is understand that our concerns need to include all of us on this planet.
