I really am proud to be an American.
I love our history, our ambitions, the ideals that we strive for (even when we miss the mark), and the freedoms we enjoy and want to make sure others can enjoy.
I wouldn't trade my citizenship here for anywhere else.
Happy Independence Day!
Current Mood: okay
Wow, that's great! Happy day! HUGS
Me... I can't wait to become Scottish one day (Yes, Lord, please??)
Naw, Australia is the best country in the world, bar none. (evil grin) But that's okay, the fact that the rest of the world doesn't realize it means we can have it all to ourselves. (pokes out tongue)

You could try Italy some time.
"NObody loves his country because it is great, but because it is his." And the reason is simple: if your country ceased to be great, and you fell out of love with it, you would prove that you had loved, not your country, but greatness.
