America is not the final destination.

America is a layover.

I, your neighbor, am likely on a different course than you. Neither of us cares.

I'll talk over the announcements you care about, you'll talk over mine. We'll take turns glancing at the clock in anticipation.

Your other neighbor may be on the same path as you, but guaranteed she'll fight tooth-and-nail to get where she's heading if it comes down to her or you.

We'll turn to junk food, magazines, mobile phones and laptops to find anything that can take us, at least temporarily, away from this place.

And all the while, we'll complain about how we're not yet where we want to be.
