Read this excerpt from a Romanian Newspaper

We rarely get a chance to
see another country’s editorial about the USA


Read this excerpt from a Romanian Newspaper ….  The article was written by Mr. Cornel Nistorescu and published under the title ‘C’ntarea Americii, meaning ‘Ode To
America ‘) in the Romanian newspaper Evenimentulzilei ‘The Daily Event’ or ‘News of the Day’.

~
An Ode to  America ~

Why are Americans so united? They
would not resemble one another even if you painted them all one color!  They speak all the languages of the world and form an astonishing mixture of civilizations and religious beliefs.


On 9/ll, the American tragedy turned three hundred million people into a hand put on the heart. Nobody rushed to accuse the White House, the Army, or the Secret Service that they are only a bunch of losers.  Nobody rushed to empty their bank accounts.   Nobody rushed out onto the streets nearby to gape about.


Instead the Americans volunteered to donate blood and to give a helping hand.

After the first moments of panic, they raised their flag over
the smoking ruins, putting on T-shirts, caps and ties in the colors of the national flag.  They placed flags on buildings and cars as if in every place and on every car a government official or the president was passing.  On every occasion, they started singing: ‘God Bless
   America !’

I watched the live broadcast and rerun after rerun for hours listening to the story of the guy who went down one hundred floors with a woman in a wheelchair without knowing who she was, or of the Californian hockey player, who gave his
life fighting with the terrorists and prevented the plane from hitting a target that could have killed other hundreds or thousands of people.

How on earth were they able to respond united as one human being?  Imperceptibly, with every word and musical note, the memory of some turned into a modern myth of tragic heroes.  And with every phone call, millions and millions of dollars were put into collection aimed at rewarding not a man or a family, but a spirit, which no money can buy.  What on earth unites the Americans in such a way?  Their land?  Their history?  Their economic Power?  Money?   I tried for hours
to find an answer, humming songs and murmuring phrases with the risk of sounding commonplace, I thought things over, I reached but only one conclusion…
Only
freedom can work such miracles.

Cornel
Nistorescu

(This deserves to be passed around the Internet forever) It took a person on the outside – looking in – to see what we take for granted !

  1. Great article. I only wish the majority of the mindless in this country would wake up and smell the roses, however, I am a realist at heart and I know they wont as they are too busy watching anything and everything they can amuse themselves with, while their country disentegrates in front of their eyes.

    • Grumply, thank you for your comments. I am not a writer, so I just copy other articles and hope they inform someone else.
