No kidding, having arrived FROM another culture I used to think it'd be a great idea if every kid could spend a year abroad. Anywhere but here. Just to be able to put themselves into perspective in relation to "the rest of the planet", realize that this country is not all there is (no offense to anyone I hope).

Ride safe, Mark!
I couldn't agree more.

And we don't even have to leave the country. If our urban children could swap places with out rural children in the Summers they both would benefit from viewing how the other lives.
The word "good" has many meanings. For example, if a man were to shoot his grandmother at a range of five hundred yards, I should call him a good shot, but not necessarily a good man. ~G.K. Chesterton
