I received an email the other day and this is part of what it said. If you want to inquire about the quote, see Snoopes. ( a gentle disclaimer is that I am an anglophile and do have a passion for England and the English.) With the war raging on and so much heat and hatred brewing, it's good to be reminded why we care. Below is the portion of the e-mail.
In case we find ourselves starting to believe all the anti-American sentiment and negativity, we should remember England's Prime Minister Tony Blair's words during a recent interview. When asked by one of his Parliament members why he believes so much in America, he said:
"A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in... And how many want out."
