What exactly am I supposed to be proud of?

I’m having a hard time trying to figure this out.

Am I really supposed to be proud of our nation when we aren’t even living up to, or supporting the ideas that are advertised as being American ideals? Bring us you weak, your tired… unless they don’t aready live here… heck we don’t even seem to want you if you already live here….

Am I really supposed to be supportive of exploiting instead of investing in our citizens?

Am I really supposed to be supportive of government officials who are more interested in where the money comes from over decency?

Am I really supposed to be proud of stupidity and for some reason value the emotional reaction and grade school antics over intelligence and wanting a greater good?

I feel lost. I can’t bring myself to just “not care” or just always “not pay attention” to what is going on in our country.

I get that maybe I’d feel better if I could just live in my own bubble and not care about anyone else, even those I don’t agree with, but its not how I’m wired, and I’m honestly paying the price over it.

I feel alone in caring…
