Happy New Year! Thanks for all the wonderfull comments.

Believe me when I say that not everyone here in the U.S. believes these wars were necessary. I feel that 9/11 hit us and sent the U.S into a rage that was taken advantage of by people in power.

I believe that we need to bring the people to justice who attacked the U.S but I also feel that we have hurt more than we have saved. We have got to find a ballance in life. If not the extremes of life will distroy us. As for money. I have my photogrpahy helping with a little extra money but my wife and I both have full time jobs that meets our living expenses. We are considered lower middle class when it comes to an average annual income levels and there is a lot more people like me in the States than there is rich people. It seems any extra cash we make just goes to inflation..

I hope you and your family have a wonderful New Year and I hope to hear from you soon.. Michael...
