A Good Day to say "Goodbye".

Today, with the passing of the FISA bill, will also serve as the anniversary of the last night that I sleep in my own home, shop in my small hometown, and watch our all-American programming. As is stands, our car is packed and our hopes are high, for tomorrow we depart on the last, and most important, leg of a 5 year journey of emigration. Tomorrow, we seek out a promise of upward mobility in a statistical meritocracy, which also means, we are pursuing the “American Dream”. Like those that came before us to found this country, we are only taking what we can carry with us, and our hopes and dreams—with luck, this will be enough.

Long drawn out post, but its threads like this that make me squeal like a little girl. I like it when they go off the deep end like this. :D
