An American flag? Here? What happened??
One week left and I'd just like to urge all Americans to vote.
Americans might find it strange to see the world so preoccupied with what is their election, but the past century Americans have made it their business to make the world their business - thereby making the election of their President something which concerns the entire globe.
Whereas taxation and local governance is important for the average American, being able to hope for a little peace, less scare tactics, someone who sees foreigners as fellow inhabitants of our planet, and not just potential enemies and terrorists - a little hope and a lot of change, that is what the world is hoping for.
We want and need an America we can like again.
