    At its best, optimism. American culture has generally been predicated on the hope of things to come, which makes ordinary interactions with people much more pleasant than with more pessimistic cultures, as well as shaping the ambitious belief that America should be the agent of change that can bring about global prosperity and security, something it has generally done successfully for seventy years.

    That sense of energy is something few nations so happily embrace. It's a pity that, politically and to an extent culturally, the US is wallowing in self-absorbed, angry nostalgia instead of celebrating that forward-looking tradition. A culture of hope based on an ideal of a nation is so rare and something Americans should cherish more than they do.

    Lake Michigan is my favorite Lake. Mackinaw Island is my favorite Island in America. Mississippi River is my favorite river.

    It's a big country, so you can visit quite a few places without having a passport (if you live here and have the money/time)

    A nice thing about America is the north west coast. It’s cold, and very few people go there, making it a great place to spend a vacation.

    While it's not perfect, it's definitely better than a lot of places. We should count our blessings that we don't live in a place like North Korea. We have so many freedoms and access to luxuries that many could only dream of.
