    to be an American, and glad for the good things we've done, but pride is something you have to earn for yourself, like the earlier comment pointed out.

    Reading some history, and seeing that the US of A told France and England and Israel to get the heck out of Egypt in 1956, I'm glad for that obscure example, among others.

    “The answer must be, I think, that beauty and grace are performed whether or not we will or sense them. The least we can do is try to be there.” ― Annie Dillard, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek
