On September 11, Youssif and his family arrived in Chicago en route to the Children's Burn Foundation in Los Angeles as Youssif prepares to undergo lengthy rehabilitation for his burns.

The family is overwhelmed by the beauty in America:

"Oh my God, it's so green. Am I in heaven?" –Youssif’s mother

"I feel like I'm in a dream. Someone needs to pinch me. You see America on television, but you never imagine or dream that you will ever be here.” He paused, tears in his eyes. "It's more than paradise." -Youssif’s father.

Thanks for the link to that story, Wordsmith. I haven't visited it yet, but I will. It sounds awesome! I can just imagine how America would look to people who've been living in sand all their lives. :)

Wordsmith, I just went to Amy's where that story is posted. The video is indeed awesome, but Amy is being attacked on that blog by true idiots who don't have one word of compassion for that poor child! As I said on Amy's blog, if they are Americans, I'm ashamed of them! GRRRR! There are those on the left who should be shipped to a Communist country, since they seem to like the idea so much!
