What makes America Human

While watching a baseball game between the Houston Astros and the Seattle Mariners this evening, the TV cameras went to the stands and took pictures of the parents of one of the players.  They and their son were all from Puerto Rico.  I had nothing but positive feelings when I saw this.  Immediately I thought I would have positive feelings as would others if the player and his family were from Iran, Iraq, Israel or other country in today’s war zone areas.  America is a grand experiment, a true phenomenon where all become a part.  This will never be denied. It is basic to the course of enlightened compassionate history.  But, I wonder, will such moments of the light become ascendant once again?  The world’s human beings are moving rapidly and ineluctably into an evil self-destructive time.
