Last night at my Toastmasters meeting (it’s a club devoted to help member practice their public speaking), a presenter asked the audience their opinions of the U.S. The questions were so thought provoking, I thought I’d turn around and ask you:
#1: Would you consider the U.S. the greatest country in the world?
#2: Do you think the U.S. is the greatest place to live? If not, where do you think is better?
I like these questions because they encourage a global perspective. I like how they get us thinking about all the pros and cons of our home nation. (Many complain, but how bad are things really?) I like how they get us to think about how the U.S. and the rest of the world has changed over the years.
I’d like to hear what you think…
