...a brief "way cool" note about my church and the USA-- some years ago my church had a Missionary visiting us from Africa... and then, a Cardinal from Belgium. It was very interesting to me that BOTH of these people, when they spoke during Mass, were practically in tears saying how very thankful they are to the USA for helping to create peace on Earth. I was really moved by that, especially when the second person said it! Sometimes I forget how much people from other countries really do appreciate our "super power" status. May peace prevail on Earth!
