To the editor:

These days some people have a hard time recognizing anything good about our country.

But the truth about the U.S. is complicated.

Granted, the Trump years have brought us low, but for anyone coming from the global South, the U.S. still looks like paradise — at least, initially.

Rule of law, due process, opportunity, democracy — as much as these have been diminished of late, they're still there, battered but breathing.

In raising public awareness of all that is wrong in the U.S., we have been discounting all that's right.
