Admittedly I am proud of this country for selfish reasons. For providing a safe refuge for my Grandparents where they could use their talents to build a life for their families and make the larger world a better place. I am proud of America for giving them and me something larger and better than ourselves to believe in and aspire to greater things for. Without that example of positive values, what is life but a meaningless rut best soon ended at the whim of an unloving god?
Also, I am proud that America is so achingly beautiful.
