America:Land Of Plenty
Does this sound a little strange coming from this blog?I know that most of my posts are negative in regards to the our capitalist system and the burden it brings to the lower class.Today,I want to bring some positive thoughts because I really love our country as much as anyone even if I try to find many ways to improve our systems.I haven't traveled like the majority of middle class Americans.I only know our controversial country firsthand but I enjoy it everyday.I'm going to one of the finest museums in the world Friday.I'm taking the train to NYC to the Museum of Modern Art and study the masters for some insight.NYC has many great museums and I think Friday is free.Many American cities provide free entertainment throughout the year.Movies,plays and sporting events are free or reduced at many locations and one just has to be on alert for good deals.High schools and universities also have free events that engage citizens in various forms of education.If you have some disposable income,every major American city has a wealth of entertainment.Musicians,some the best in the world,are constantly touring and bringing their art to the people.My beloved Knicks play a few times a week in NYC while every game is shown on T.V. for a small cable price.The variety of food in America is increasing as we speak. New housing is being built with zero energy standards.The present government is trying hard to increase our renewable resources with subsidies and an encouraging philosophy.Many wealth professionals have foundations that help underprivileged students in our major cities.Some say,the United States is the best place to start a new business because of the wealth of it's citizens.
I could go on about what America has to offer.Income inequality makes it harder for all Americans to prosper and enjoy her beauty and abundance.Some of us have a lot more than others here and my blog will continue to bring solutions through my readings.My hope for America is that it truly shines as a light in a world of violence and darkness.It can do so by sharing the abundance and bringing resources to those in need.Collectively,we can overcome any adversity.
