Daily Prompt: On the Road

On the Road

If you could pause real life and spend some time living with a family anywhere in the world, where would you go? 

I would live in the Scandinavian countries with their families. They have some of the best education systems, lowest levels of economic inequality, and most connected communities. I would like to see the family life they have and the culture they live in.

I believe to become successful you must mimic the success in others and in due time you will see success in yourself. It should be the same concept for a country. The leading countries of social and economic progression should be mirrored. I wish America would follow the example of these great countries.

Because the definition of insanity is to repeat the same activity over and over and expect different results.  America is in a cycle of repetition where the rich keep getting richer and the poor keep getting poorer. Why is this? I believe lack of education, lack of transparency between the public and government, and high levels of social distrust may be some of the many factors that cause this country towards a path of insanity.

The first step of solving any problem is recognizing there is one. And I have recognized that America is no longer the greatest country in the world.

So how can we change this? I have my own beliefs and solutions to this problem. My question is what are yours?

***Travels: v. 1) Make a journey, typically of some length or abroad. 2) Take more than the allowed number of steps (typically two) while holding the ball without dribbling it. n. The action of traveling, typically abroad.
