This is 'Merica'? Not really. Bravery and humanity is a world wide trait.

If you, like Michael Keyes, think that we are the only country that steps up in the face of adversity then yes, you probably have a typical, sadly, Merican centered point of view...

NEWS: We are not alone on this earth.

Michael Keyes is a typical male merican lacking empowerment. He needs to see pictures of muscular navy seals, fire fighters and guns to feel empowered. Nothing wrong with soldiers and firemen. I just know that heroism is not unique to our US military personnel. I recognize brave character in all socio-economic, religious, racial, demographic and gender groups.

The images we see from Texas can be found in other societies and cultures around the world. Look at images of Syria (or any natural disaster for that matter). Humanitarian efforts are not confined to male mericans or this country. 75% of Syria are Sunni Muslim. Google images from Syria. Looks to me like they work as hard in the face of disaster. Just because the disaster in Texas is on our home court doesn't give me more pride or hope about the human race or even our country. The pride I feel is reinforcement of something that I know already. People everywhere are good and they step up when needed.

Well said Minnie Smile
some good people can be found all over the world

but that doesn't have anything to do with anything

this is about something that happened here in the good ol' US of A

no reason to have any problem with this unless you are a sad sorry person with some pathetic agenda you think you have you to push on other people all the time

here's some advice: if some people are happy and proud with something that happened here in our country and you don't want to join in because you hate yourself or you hate the country you live in, best to keep it to yourself or bounce it off the echo chamber bubble you live in where all the people you know agree with you

otherwise you come across as some debbie downer looking for evil where it doesn't exist

the link was about what happened in the video. the person posting the video, i don't know anything about them, and this doesn't have anything to do with them anyway

as it happens, the video is not at the link any more, but you can still find it on YT searching for 'redneck army saves national guard'
