100,000

To be an American is to live with a colossal sense of entitlement. The Red Sox are crowned World Champions without ever having to the leave the country. This is America afterall. The myth we tell ourselves is that this is the best life can get, that nowhere has it been done better. This is the bright shining city on a hill. This is God's country. And so it is clear that 100,000 lives lost on the other side of the world for a mistake (if not a lie) is merely cost of doing business. Are we not God's representatives on this earth? Is this not our world anyway?

Ain't God American?
