Non-Americans Are Sharing Things They Love About The US, And I Feel Grateful To Be An American
"Most people are super helpful and friendly."
We all know that the United States has a LOT of progress to be made. But that doesn't mean there aren't some great things about this country!
1. "Most people are super helpful and friendly."
"One time, I was in upstate New York, trying to call a friend to come pick me up, and my British cell didn’t work. A man stopped to check if I was okay and lent me his, an act of kindness I’ll never forget."
"I love that when I go to a store, the employees usually greet me and even attempt small talk, and that usually makes my day! And people will compliment others out of nowhere, and I love it. Just something I never thought of doing."
2. "Absolutely stunning landscapes and scenery."
"America has amazing landscapes! And to Europeans, even places Americans would typically characterize as boring can be interesting. We’ve seen so much of America in movies that even a drive through Kansas feels like weird déjà vu. 'Wow, it actually IS like that.'"
3. "Accessibility, especially for people with a disability or other mobility issues. The large parking spaces, ramps, or leveled-out floors in so many places, and wheelchair accessible rides at amusement parks."
"Even a lift at the swimming pool, where a person can enter the pool from their wheelchair."
