According to blogger Chris Van Allsburg, Americans are easily offended and are just too sensitive.
Dec 8, 2012
"I've offended many people in my life, and that is something of which I am not proud," he wrote in a recent Vanallsblog, "Sensitive Americans: We need to get over ourselves." "In fact, it makes me sad that I have made someone so upset with me that they want nothing to do with me because of things I've said or written. I wish I could change that."
Van Allsburg — who grew up in Grand Haven and now lives in Hickory, N.C. — struggles with not being a finger-pointer but still be involved with people honestly.
