Reasons I'm Glad to be American II

This one comes to us from China. It seems that over 200,000(!!!) Chinese are stuck in a train station in Guangzhou, capitol of Guangdong province. Over the next week that number may swell to 600,000(!!!!!!!). The culprit? Bad weather.

On our worst weather day how many people have been stranded in Atlanta? Or Chicago? Or New York? Not that many. The influx of travelers is due to the coming Chinese New Year. Many may be stranded far from family due to inclement weather.

I feel for those people, and feel gratitude for my life here.
