Its too bad that some nations have to point to things they didn't do to find pride

Landing on the moon is a good one, but I would choose this as #1

Dr Martin Luther King Jr's "I have a dream" Speech which was delivered in front of 250,000 people.


This speech will live as long as humans walk the Earth.

Kelly Holmes won two gold medals at the 2004 Games, one in the 800 meter run and the other in the 1,500 meter run. That made me proud to be British it is one of my favorite ever sporting moments.

- The Russian state - one of the richest on the planet. By right of birth (the Constitution says that the subsoil belong to the people you rely unthinkable for other peoples money. - Russia's historical heritage impresses with its grandeur and scale. The Russian state - the largest on the planet, we begin at the grave of Kant in the ancient city of Prussian kings Koenigsberg and end in the zone of flowering cherry on the ancient Islands of the Kuril Islands. You imagine that if it remained of the Soviet Union, and we would have left the earth, which were sold or given away to other countries, our country would have been almost half of the world in terms of territory.You can spend your entire life in journeys to the most unthinkable and varied landscapes, without leaving the limits of Russia. English was physically unable to present his perception of the world in tiny borders of the European Nations. Russian science and technology lie in the Foundation of the world science and technology. From the periodic table.....We have experienced something that is not able to survive any other nation, but you all exactly is and will be. Russia is home to many Nations, and you'll hardly find a peaceful and friendly existence with other Nations as it is in Russia. We are what they are, and we after hundreds of years have left their identity, regardless of external influences on us other Nations. In Russia, as if there was no good or bad there is something mystical what causes a person to live by faith, soul and your heart. I'm glad that I'm Russian and live in the most beautiful country, where such does not exist anymore. We have created their civilization, when many other Nations and countries to imitate others.
