  •  You are right to be proud... (7+ / 0-)

    This country has done much that all of humanity should look upon and feel pride for. How much greater the pride, then, should an American feel for those same things, since you are part of the people that made them possible? For much of my life I was an outsider but nonetheless proud of humanity, because of the things I saw America and Americans accomplishing. Now I live here and the ideals and principles that led to those accomplishments still inspire. I still see Americans all around me who are similarly inspired, and who do their best to live accordingly.

    Your pride is more than justified. All the more so because of the disquiet that these threats to those ideals cause you.

    There is little an American can teach an Englishman about pride in his native land, and since I have come to also share a measure of your pride in the land that I now call my home I can only share your wish for a future in which that pride is once more unequivocal.
