Yes 1217 you are right of course, we people all over the world should learn from each other because each has something positive to teach the other.
ItalianGuy4US, you are correct that there are many other people represented in the U.S.A. The famous saying is that America is "The Great Melting Pot" but I think it would be more precise to say that America is a great mosaic. Each group brings it's own special customs and beliefs into the mix. It has always been this way.
All I have to do is to look at my own family. We have, in no particular order, Germans, Italians, Portuguese, Colombians, Spaniards, Irishmen, French and that's all I can think of off hand. So, how are we to feel about Europeans? If you ask a Native American, he would most likely refer to us as Europeans!
I don;tthe many Americans really understand how things work in Europe today. I think we often picture Europe as a group of very distinct people going about their daily lives much as our grandparents described to us until the rare occasion when we hear something on the news. We don't get as much news about Europe as it sounds like you guys get about America. We very rarely hear anything at all to tell the truth. I think that's too bad because more European news might help many Americans to understand Europe better.
It sounds like you have an opinion about how Americans feel toward Europe. How do you think we look at Europe?
I hate newspapermen. They come into camp and pick up their camp rumors and print them as facts. I regard them as spies, which in truth, they are.
