I totally feel for you guys!

I have friends who can't seem to understand that there's actually a whole other world outside their tiny little Iowa town. They have no concept of diversity or tolerance and it seems like they judge anybody who is any different from them. GRRR!!

They also think that the United States can do no wrong and that the "world is forever changed after 9/11." They don't understand that there are so many people in so many other countries who live with terrorism EVERY SINGLE DAY!! It's so hard to talk about political or social issues with them because the only thing that they seem to listen to is things their (conservative) parents tell them - and these are 18-19 yr olds i'm talking about!! (I have nothing against conservatives (mostly) but I do have something against people who can't back up their beliefs with anything other than "well, my dad says this...")
