But let us not forget that Americans are not the only compassionate peoples. And that "God bless America" is as vain a statement as one can make.
Helping others is not something that many Americans do, and is therefore not an American trait. I believe it is a more basic, humanistic endeavor, purely up to the conscience and heart of the individual...regardless of nationality.
