To put aside the regional differences, take a few minutes and love America.

I'm proud to be an American too. That's makes three.

Pretty pathetic how few posters responded to this thread today, isn't it? Especially considering this is the anniversary of September 11. I guess people on these forums would rather yack about bull**** all day than take one minute to read this.

Maybe you are right. OR maybe, just maybe people SHOULD yack about BS all day, especially on this day rather than dwell on a terrible, depressing event that took thousands of lives.
It depends on how you want to look it.
Every 9/11 i do think about what happened that day and it sucks, it really does. Im not saying we should totally forget that it happened but why be upset if people dont want to dwell on terrible things?

Only someone who, for the most part, does not draw their own conclusions would be proud to be an American today. Or someone who has personal ties with the country where logic is not paid attention to. Such as having a son in the military. Really, pride for america went out of the window in the 60's and should never come back until the country's leaders change their ways.

Wow, nice attitude.

If people can't have pride in imperfect things, then I guess no one should really have pride in anything, should they? Name me one nation that hasn't made poor decisions or mistakes.

The idea is to look for the good and have pride in it.

If you can't find ANY good in our nation... well, for one thing, that doesn't show a whole lot of perceptiveness on your part. And... good luck finding a nation that you CAN have pride in, because they all screw up. All the time. A lot of them screw up more than we do.

only 1 country has America's past, present, and ill prepared future. so you can't go comparing it to any other nation on Earth. they simply do not equate. Is pride a deadly sin? Why would it be considered a deadly sin? Think about it...

Does pride give way to greed? Does pride lead to envy and other negative emotions?
