You think other countries don't pay attention??

We rarely get a chance to see another country's editorial about the USA.
Read this excerpt from a Romanian Newspaper. The article was written by
>Mr. Cornel Nistorescu and published under the title 'C'ntarea Americii,
>meaning 'Ode To America' in the Romanian newspaper Evenimentulzilei 'The
>Daily Event' or 'News of the Day'
> ~An Ode to America~
> Why are Americans so united? They would not resemble one another even
>if you pa inted them all one color! They speak all the languages of the
>world and form an astonishing mixture of civilizations and religious
> Still, the American tragedy turned three hundred million people into a
>hand put on the heart.
> Nobody rushed to accuse the White House, the Army, or the Secret Service
>that they are only a bunch of losers.
> Nobody rushed to empty their bank accounts.
> Nobody rushed out onto the streets nearby to gape about.
> Instead the Americans volunteered to donate blood and to give a helping
> After the first moments of panic, they raised their flag over the
>smoking ruins, putting on T-shirts, caps and ties in the colors of the
>national flag. They placed flags on buildings and cars as if in every place
>and on every car a government official or the president was passing. On
>every occasion, they started singing:'God Bless America!'
> I watched the live broadcast and rerun after rerun for hours listening
>to the story of the guy who went down one hundred floors with a woman in a
>wheelchair without knowing who she was, or of the Californian hockey
>player, who gave his life fighting with the terrorists and prevented the
>plane from hitting a target that could have killed other hundreds or
>thousands of people.
> How on earth were they able to respond united as one human being?
>Imperceptibly, with every word and musical note, the memory of some turned
>into a modern myth of tragic heroes. And with every phone call, millions
>a nd millions of dollars were put into a collection aimed at rewarding not a
>man or a family, but a spirit, which no money can buy.
> What on earth can unite the Americans in such a way?
> Their land? Their history? Their economic Power? Money?
> I tried for hours to find an answer, humming songs and murmuring phrases
>with the risk of sounding commonplace, I thought things over, I reached but
>only one conclusion... Only freedom can work such miracles.
> Cornel Nistorescu
> (This deserves to be passed around the Internet forever.) It took a
>person on the outside - looking in - to see what we take for granted !
