in response to comments on here

with regard to the use of the word "miracle". other cultures may use "miracle"as it pertains to their personal and cultural experience.

it is my experience many americans are jaded and insensitive when they interpret how people from other cultures may use and translate a descriptor such as the word "miracle" into english.

we could all use more sensitivity when understanding and interpreting what writers and speakers from other cultures may mean when using particular forms of speech translated into english. they could stand to humble themselves to learn and understand other cultures. period.

it is gross when the majority of us come from arrogance entitled superiority rather than making an effort to acknowledge we are not the only dwellers on this earth and we are far from superior to anyone.
