I don't love this country, [View all]
never have. I don't feel some emotional connections that some call patriotism.
I don't hate it either. It's an okay country, better than some, worse than others. I live here by accident of birth and family history. My life works for me living here. And most of the people I love live here. If I had to move to another country, I wouldn't be bereft.
That said, I believe it is my duty as a citizen of America to do what I can to improve the lives of all who live here. Not out of some patriotic fervor, but because morally and ethically it is the right thing to do.
