38. We don't "love" it like a 3 year-old loves his Mommy. .
"Mommy is perfect." "Mommy never does anything wrong." "If you say something bad about my Mommy, you are a bad bad person"

Our love is a litte more mature. When we see her veering off her true path of a better future for all her Citizens, and a safer world, we will do everything in our power to bring her back.
