    • Running away isn’t going to make things better. If you are not happy with the way things are done, make things change around you. All countries have down sides.

       We spend are time blaming others for what is happening; the governments, the rich, the system, the dumm arses, etc. Someody once said (I don’t remember who): “If you‘re not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.” If everybody would take responsabilities for what is happening around them and act accordingly, things would be better. Change starts small. It starts with the way you treat your family, your neighbors. Just as violence, kindness is contagious.

    • Well said, Mavikaya.

      Our son has mentioned this once or twice and I know he would love to live in Scotland, but unless he is well prepared financially and at least takes a trip there to check things out, then I would say to him, stay here, save your money and work towards a goal, (which he is luckily), check out some other states in every way...we have a big, beautiful United States here with lots to offer if one so chooses.

      And, by the looks of things in other countries, one should be very careful where they choose to go.

    • Well said ladies!  

       Mavikaya, I told him almost word for word what you just said.  

      Mary, funny thing is, it’s Scotland he was talking about too!  Wonder if they know something we don’t?

      I’m not against him leaving the country, but I will be doing lots of research and pointing him in what I believe is the right direction.  

      If I was 18, I don’t think I’d hang around here.  What’s the point.  

      Actually he won’t be 18 till March, but I told him as soon as he turns 18 to get his passport, and when school is out this spring, he can go check out Canada and see how he likes that.

    • Maybe he should just travel for a while, not thinking of settling down long term. The grass is always greener elsewhere but once you are there, you realize it’s the same color as back home.
