American Contrasts

Americans travel to countries despite State Department warnings. Thousands in Lebanon are now dependent on our government to get them out of danger. Are they grateful? One young man whining about the trip to safety as poorly organized. He had to sleep on the floor of the ship and there was no food during the eight hour trip.
The inhumanity of it all. Pampered Americans require far more elegant means to get them out of the danger they were forewarned about. Sheesh!

I cannot help but compare this apparently healthy young man who was not pleased with his travel arrangements to the men and women who serve in our military. Spoiled, thankless youth depending on someone to get him to safety vs. our troops who experience heat, exhaustion, real danger and yet serve to defend us. I thank God for our brave military.
