  2. Of all those 20 things, 3 struck me the most:
    1) People are generally good -- people are people are people; if you're good, chances are those you meet will be good.
    2) The media lies -- I don't think it takes a trip around the world to know that; just go to your front door and bring in the paper.
    3) People don't hate Americans -- whew! that is refreshing news.
    All in all, I liked this.

  8. If everyone could move from his own town to visit other cities, to know other cultures,other places, then the people could realize all the things menctioned in this post;
    It's important to combat provincialism, nationalism,and the idea that:"we are stonger, smarters, better than the others"
    changing our mind in: We are all humans.
