What is ok to be proud of OP?

Proud to be an American and even have a GIANT united states flag as the first thing you see when you come in my business.
But having said that...if someone said they weren't proud to be an American I wouldn't take offense. When someone kneels for the anthem I don't take offense. It has to be looked at in context. Many of those that are offended when NFL players take a knee are in the kitchen grabbing a beer while the anthem plays anyway..that's way more disrespectful.
We have to stop being offended by everyone and everything.
I'd be offended if someone came in my business and spit on my flag. That would be just cause to be outraged. But that hasn't happened yet.
I think the biggest thing is that in American we're a bunch of whiny babies that cry when we don't get our way or someoe disagrees with us. LOL Grow up!

I find hard to be proud given the current political climate.
Any country that has become as politicized as the US is a failure.
By both the state and the people.
