We are land of opportunity

-A A +A
By Ralph Damiani

Some folks like to spend a lot of their time going over-time to find anything – and everything – that is wrong with America. And while it is true, there are issues and concerns that we as a people and nation have and must deal with, a very solid case can be made that this is truly the best place there is to live.

When we have troubles – be it with the government, our leaders or our laws – we deal with them. We don’t bury our heads and pretend those problems don’t exist.

But more than that, this is one of the few nations anywhere, where every person has the chance to improve their life, regardless of where they’re from, who their parents are or the color of their skin. The freedoms we enjoy give everyone the ability to be successful. That cannot be said in very many nations.

Here, you have opportunity based on ability. Period. It does not mattter who your father was, it matters what you can do.

Yes, there are obstacles in the prejudices people have. But these are not legal or societal issues. You may have to overcome an individual but not the society as a whole.

Again, we are fairly unique in that regard.
