Lost Boy of Sudan: At Home in U.S.A.

"In America, everyone has a chance to do all these things," Lomong said. "You follow the rules, people will choose, and if I'm blessed to get that opportunity, I'll get it."

Born in the war torn country of Sudan, he is now a U.S. citizen and is on the U.S. Olympic Team, caring America's flag in the opening ceremonies.

Reading his story only makes me ashamed of the complaining I hear about how hard things are...

I mean, I'm equally guilty of that complaining. I should be counting my blessings everyday.
