“This is the greatest country in the world.”

An American veteran brings his Ukranian bride to the States for a honeymoon, and gets to see his country through fresh eyes.  And understands why not to sweat the small stuff:

…it’s all too easy to misjudge the gravity of life’s problems when you’re used to peace and prosperity—after all, there’s no microaggression, no trigger, no slur or verbal insult that could ever compare with the impartial brutalities of revolution and war.

Tip from Maggie’s Farm

UPDATE:  A young German woman, disillusioned with her life, is rescued from death by a kindly stranger.

As for Katharina, she said Nancy rescued her in more ways than one.

“Someone cared,” Katharina said.  She said the whole reason she did the hike alone was because she’d given up on people.

“I lost faith in humanity,” Katharina said.  But she said she got her faith back in a “really big way.”

“Come to America,” Katharina said.
