c Thanks for this important reminder of my ignorance and that of my countrymen. May we open to the rest of the world and be spokes in the wheel instead of feeling that we must be the hub. But it's going over the hill. The hub will break unless we strengthen the many spokes representing the many peoples in this world by becoming a spoke, The wheel is us, the human race, the human community. Namaste.
