America is an amazing country.
I often think about the odds of being born here and how lucky we are. If my grandparents had stayed in Romania two things: I wouldn’t have been born because my parents wouldn’t have met in Portland, Oregon, or if some how I had been born I would have been murdered in the holocaust.
So with all our weirdness and faults, we are so lucky to be here…..not that everything is perfect.
For instance, if there is no change in our gun laws, a new and disappointing record will be set in 2015: for the first time gun related deaths will exceed those of car accidents, 35,000 to 32,000.
Also, and this is something that has occurred this year: Obesity and related diseases (diabetes, heart, etc) and health problems from it have passed tobacco as the leading cause of deaths.
