Are we as Americans truly happy about anything? Yes and no are the answers that came to my mind. First off, we get a new car and we are happy, we get a new puppy and we are happy, but really how long does that take and really last? Maybe up to a few hours. One minute we could be saying that we love our new car and the next whining about how slow it is warming up in the winter (I know that this is true because my car takes forever to warm up in the winter) or cooling off in the summer. Really, let's face it, we as Americans are not ever truly happy about ANYTHING! We could say how much we love life and then the next being bum out because our favorite cat die or something like that. Take the time to look around, people.
