After traveling there RT, I think it's more than that. My favorite thing to do in another country is people watching. Imo, Russians don't understand that every American is ingrained with the rights we hold dear, "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness". It really comes down to we have good reasons to smile.

However, it would be wrong to believe that the Americans with their smiles only create the illusion of well-being and that their smiles are stretched with false joy. This is not so. Americans: they are a nation that truly feels happy. These people get used to smiling from the cradle onwards, so they do not pretend to be cheerful. The desire for a successful happy life is inculcated from childhood.” (Этикет США)

yes roadfix, this song was recorded back in the mid 70's
the Beamer Brother's are influential in Hawaii's music scene

Every person should have a teacher that they never forget. Those are the teachers that leave their mark on the world and the citizens of our future.
