America Is Already Great

, , , | Hopeless | November 16, 2016

(I am an American living in London. I jump into a taxi, and the driver hears my accent.)

Driver: “Are you an American?”

Me: “Uh… yes I am.”

(I think I am in for a lecture or worse, but then the driver turns to me, sadness in his eyes.)

Driver: “I want to thank all the American friends. If it wasn’t for the American Marines and the British who came to Kosovo, my family would not be alive. My parents would be dead, I would not be here today and have my beautiful children. I am so thankful to the peacekeeper Marines who were stationed in Kosovo.”

(No amount of taxi-ride small talk was going to compare to that!)
