I know this doesnt have anything to with this topic, i just felt that this will show people how important america, I cant say in any other way cause cause words cant decribe this, but it touched me in a special way. I am not talking to horror that has happened recently, but rather a canadian editorial that was standing up for america here it is:
This is from a Canadian newspaper and IS worth sharing.......
America: The Good Neighbor.
Widespread but only partial news coverage was given recently to a remarkable editorial broadcast from Toronto by Gordon Sinclair, a Canadian television commentator. What follows is the full text of his broadcast.
"This Canadian thinks it is time to speak up for the Americans as the most generous and possibly the least appreciated people on all the earth.
Germany, Japan and, to a lesser extent, Britain and Italy were lifted out of the debris of war by the Americans who poured in billions of dollars and forgave other billions in debts. None of these countries is today paying even the interest on its remaining debts to the United States.
When France was in danger of collapsing in 1956, it was the Americans who propped it up, and their reward was to be insulted and swindled on the streets of Paris. I was there. I saw it.
When earthquakes hit distant cities, it is the United States that hurries in to help. This spring, 59 American communities were flattened by tornadoes. Nobody helped.
The Marshall Plan and the Truman Policy pumped billions of dollars into discouraged countries. Now newspapers in those countries are writing about the decadent, warmongering Americans.
I'd like to see just one of those countries that is gloating over the erosion of the United States dollar build its own airplane. Does any other country in the world have a plane to equal the Boeing Jumbo Jet, the Lockheed Tri-Star, or the Douglas DC10? If so, why don't they fly them? Why do all the International lines except Russia fly American Planes?
Why does no other land on earth even consider putting a man or woman on the moon? You talk about Japanese technocracy, and you get radios. You talk about German technocracy, and you get automobiles.
You talk about American technocracy, and you find men on the moon - not once, but several times - and safely home again.
You talk about scandals, and the Americans put theirs right in the store window for everybody to look at . Even their draft-dodgers are not pursued and hounded. They are here on our streets, and most of them, unless they are breaking Canadian laws, are getting American dollars from ma and pa at home to spend here. When the railways of France, Germany and India were breaking down through age, it was the Americans who rebuilt them. When the Pennsylvania Railroad and the New York Central went broke, nobody loaned them an old caboose. Both are still broke.
I can name you 5000 times when the Americans raced to the help of other people in trouble. Can you name me even one time when someone else raced to the Americans in trouble? I don't think there was outside help even during the San Francisco earthquake.
Our neighbors have faced it alone, and I'm one Canadian who is damned tired of hearing them get kicked around. They will come out of this thing with their flag high. And when they do, they are entitled to thumb their nose at the lands that are gloating over their present troubles. I hope Canada is not one of those."
Stand proud, America!
I had received this message from a friend through e-mail. I must say this was truly an interesting article and it had touched me as well as other people. America is a corrupted nation that does not follow its laws, but in our nations history, we have done more good than evil. It is really sad that nobody realizes this and would take up arms against us. What happened recently was senseless and cruel. Our forefathers would not have tolerated this. War is not the answer; terrorism will never end. World peace cannot be achieved because we cannot rid of it corruption. But, we can overcome this if we unite together and stand as one. In the words of Abraham Lincoln, “United we stand, divided we fall.”
We can get through this, we will prevail and we will find who did this and they will be punished for their crimes.
“We, the People of the United States, in order to form a more Perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” The preamble of the Constitution of the United States.
I hope this will make people understand what has happened was a heartless act and to prove the fact the world is full of cruel assholes and people can realize the good america has done despite its problems. I just pray for the safety of those there are stilled trapped in the rubble of the WTC and the Pentagon as the families who are waiting for an answer.
