Why Non-Americans Opinions Matter In The US 2016 Presidential Elections

I’m not American and my friends know me as a Jamaican national. I have never been to the United States and I don’t plan to in the near future. I had hoped a while back to visit, but given all that may happen, I’m not holding out hope.

Now, as a foreigner to my United States friends, I have seen where Americans are not happy when someone like me voices my opinions on the presidential race. What Americans do not realize is that what happens in the US happens to the rest of the world. Here are some reasons why your presidential race matters to the rest of us.

Ghostwriting Secrets: The Crap We See On Amazon Today

I’ve written about reviews before and how they affect the author. This particular event is somewhat different.

Today I realized that many people feel guilty or helpless when they can’t offer a word of advice or consolation to the people they consider friends. I tend to feel that way sometimes. I feel their pain and empathize with what they are going through but I am usually stuck when it comes to something nice to say.

The Real Meaning Of Christmas To Me

I was born and raised in an island in the Caribbean called Jamaica. There is a culture difference between Jamaicans and the rest of the world. The meaning of Christmas to Jamaicans, including myself, and the rest of the world might be different, but honestly I don’t really think it is. We are people and people are the same wherever we may go.
