Hard to be proud to live in america any more
If you live here and it's so hard, you can easily renounce your citizenship and immigrate to a more favorable country for your ideals. Me personally,
I'm proud to be an American!
Proud to be an American
A study once showed that when people from all around the globe where asked who they are, every person asked that question answered with their name
except one country.
Can you guess which country that was?
on topic, I tend to give little credence to stories from un named sources who used to work either here or there.
Whilst it may be important for some to believe that they are proud to be American, surely it isn't a stretch to be proud to be a person, proud to show
compassion, proud to lead by example.
American was once respected and people saw a proud strong nation, but it is now showing cracks, the shine is getting dull, people are losing respect
from all around the globe.
I do not call myself an Australian, I was born where I was not by choice but by chance.
I call myself a human being with compassion, believing we all have a right to exist.
It is sad when we have to identify ourselves with a bit of dirt with a name on it.
