The bad and the god guys

16.06.2005 - 00:04 / filled under default

At reboot I had the pleasure of not only meeting Rick Segal, but also spend part of my first afternoon in Copenhagen with him - make that a coffee and a fun shopping trip for some power plug converter, because he left his at home. Shooping in Danemark proved to be quite difficult, not all of them are willing to just let you buy stuff.

Rick is an American living in Canada (seems popular these days) and was a really wonderful conversation partner with great opinions about different cultures throughout the world - and some of those views will make me think for a longer time.

In his latest post "Sometimes its hard to be an American" he writes:

Every one of my adventures scored one for the good guys; my fellow teammates and my country as a whole. We were the Americans. We were appreciated. The flag on my uniform and later on my laptop bag meant something.

Today it's hard to carry this passport.
I can imagine. Most of the Americans at reboot excused themself for Bush, and did get a lot of applause. But then again, it is people like Rick who show us, that there are Americans out there, who are from the "good side".

Note, that I have not said anything about the content of the post, which is not as important to me as the fact, that he is trying to say what he is thinking and why. Blogging help others to understand why one thinks the way one does - and on the way show that there are not only 'crazy' Americans.
