I got this from Mommabear's page, and I suppose I am a little guilty. I like being an American. Sometimes though, I just have to wonder if its a little overated. We have so much, but we give so little. We take so much yet all we have done lately is to make the world a worse place to live. The coming economic upheaval will bring out the best or worse in us. Hopefully we can recapture that spirit we had before.

And there's nothing wrong with loving American culture, but it may have negative effects on your life.
Slow down and enjoy what you have. Reconnect with life's simple pleasures.
You don't need to be in a consumerist rat race. Life's too short to overwork yourself!
