I posted this picture on my facebook page a few days ago with the question what is special about this picture. I am intrigued with this picture.
These two boys played together for several days and got along just fine. They are related, but very distantly - 4th cousins. What amazes me they really can't even talk to each other. The boy in the hat, Sam, is from Sweden. Coleman is from the USA. It may be sometime before they get to see each other again.
In the picture they are watching a DVD together and as you can see they are sharing. In fact I think the DVD is probably a Disney story - in Swedish!! Amazing!!
I am angry today. Our own country can not even agree on issues. We make life so complicated. All of our branches of government are in almost total chaos and functioning minimally. We are self-centered and acting very ignorantly. We think that our national debt crisis can be solved by printing more money rather than reducing our debt - that is foolish.
We need to change - the two boys above had major differences - yet got along great. Why can't we?
