In America, we get these perks by birth. It would be un-American to ask for help and not get it when you need it. The thought of it seems pretty silly, but our privileges as citizens of this great country come in big and small ways.

The traditions and cultures that are created in faraway places somehow come together in a celebration of what it is to be American — different and yet as one.

People are interesting things. I write about them and what makes them interesting.
