Clever people will understand and help, the others hardly…

Hello everyone!

My name is David Dougherty, and I am an American. I live in the US capital city, Washington, DC. I would like to explain to you why I use Esperanto, the constructed international language.

I already know what you must be thinking. It is not rude or strange to think at first, that the idea of Esperanto is an "unusual" matter, or even a little bit weird. An international language, which no government or country uses? How, and why? Even stranger is the idea that an American would recommend Esperanto. I know that many people around the world are now striving and paying money to learn English, which just happens to be my native language. Now I shall attempt to answer these questions, and hopefully even more.
