America’s Got Talent 2014 - Auditions - Andrey Moraru
This is an awesome act and the man obviously has great talent, but the reason I am posting this video is because of what he thinks this country is about, AND he’s RIGHT ON!
America seems to be suffering from self-esteem problems today, a certain, ‘unsureness’ among the citizenry. I completely understand that. In many ways Congress acts like everything is over. Well it’s not over.
This country STANDS for freedom, a government that governs people well with justice and humanely, diversity, opportunity, creativity, innovation, generosity, respect, personal rights, optimism, family (which is more than the nuclear family, in my humble opinion).
I really hope that the government of this country pulls itself together and starts reflecting the idea that even with all the technological changes, new ideas, new peoples, environmental changes, etc that THESE ideologies have ALWAYS been a part of who we are as a people regardless of race, religion, culture, country of origin, ability, education, or sex and age.
While that is a bit different than perhaps what the cultures are that stabilize in places like the Middle East right now, in that they may end up with a more homogenous population, I sincerely hope that those values are something that they can also embrace in their own countries.
These fundamental principles are the thing that this planet citizen is rooting for. In the stranger, he is me and I am him. We are all in this together.
