No kidding, having arrived FROM another culture I used to think it'd be a great idea if every kid could spend a year abroad. Anywhere but here. Just to be able to put themselves into perspective in relation to "the rest of the planet", realize that this country is not all there is (no offense to anyone I hope).

I couldn't agree more.
And we don't even have to leave the country. If our urban children could swap places with out rural children in the Summers they both would benefit from viewing how the other lives.
