I don’t know why people are so afraid to travel. The world is a wonderful place. Too bad there are so many Americans that don’t know that.
People in America are taught to fear other countries. The only things the news covers from other countries are bad. Never anything good. The world is not a war in Iraq. In fact, my guess is that America has more crime than most other countries.
Most people in countries other than America are good people, but Americans don’t realize that. They are too afraid to go and find out for themselves. In reality, the world is a good place.
I don’t know why Americans are so afraid to travel. If they saw what I’ve seen, they wouldn’t be scared any more and the world could finally have peace.
