...The American Nightmare

Ok......you are 25 and arrived in the USA in 1989 from Costa Rica.
That would have made you 5 years old at that time, just starting school.
So why would you be concerned about school uniforms?
Also, last I checked, Costa Rica was a relatively prosperous country. How is it that you had never seen a toilet? Even if you didn't have one in your own home, you would have ran across one somewhere. Same goes for the TV
Also, how is that your feet touched the tarmac in Miami. Flights arriving to Miami International arrive at gates. People haven't set foot on tarmacs in Miami when deboarding a plane in many many years.
Would you like to set things straight?

I caught your thread last night before I logged. It's extremely well written, and I'm glad you took the time to share it.
It's clear from some of the responses here, that there are people in the world who hate the U.S. so much, that they have no problem whatsoever lashing out at anything labeled America.. including resorting to personal attacks on your family. I think anyone who openly expresses their hope, that harm may come to a child, doesn't need anyone's help in exposing just what kind of person they are.
I doubt I could add anything to your OP, except that I support any decision you, or your brother, choose to make.
I'm right up the street in Panther Valley, and can honestly say that I'm proud to have you as a neighbor.
