The average American is like other folks all over the world. He works hard to support his family and wants to see his kids become educated and to succeed in life. You have Christians, Jews, Muslims and a few Hindus. USA is called a Judeo-Christian country. In general, there are tremendous advantages in USA. Truly, it is an environment of terrific abundance and the public education system is such that anyone who truly wants to become educated can do so. In other words, social class is no barrier to success. I think this is why people from all over the world come there to live and your only limitations are those you impose on yourself.Right? ....Though i amnot as well travelled as you are but,i have done almost the same things with BOOKS .I truly believe its the same with a little difference.so,I think of you as my friend and brother too and having a different faith is no barrier for us not to be friends and brothers.
Ps: This is a poem by The great Iranian Poet "Sadi"
All men are members of the same body,
Created from one essence.
If fate brings suffering to one member,
The others cannot stay at rest.
You who remain indifferent
To the burden of pain of others,
Do not deserve to be called human
