    What a special photo! On our yearly drive from Virginia to Minnesota I am always uplifted by the wealth of the nation we see when driving past the twin ports of Duluth and Superior. So much bounty from the heartland heading out to the world.

    How different it must feel to drive by the southern California port of Long Beach. There you see the wealth of China coming into the USA. Another country’s wealth, salaries, jobs, skills.

    The poetic tribute to the American worker by Walt Whitman comes to mind when I see Duluth.
    “I Hear America Singing!”

      Thank you Caro, I am just seeing your comment now.
      I fear that Americans’ desire for cheap goods has forced our American-made goods to be made elsewhere. Even the number of workers on the farms have diminished while the amount of land in one farm has grown. When I lived in Seattle, I saw what you are describing, and sometimes here in the Twin Ports we get ships bringing good from other nations, but leaving with grain or taconite.
