I'm certainly happy I was born in the United States. I have been given every opportunity to succeed in life. I feel safe where I live and I am very happy. That being said, I do hope everyone can someday say the same for themselves, wherever they live.
I do feel a little sad for people who do not understand pride. There is nothing wrong with taking pride in where you are from. It's part of what you makes you.. you. Just as long as you're not arrogant about it. I don't have a giant American flag in my front yard or anything but I will come to the defense of my country. The most patriotic I probably get is when our soccer team is playing. :)
