To our culture pride is everything. Our national pride has been increasing. It's important to be proud of our country and proud of ourselves. When we take pride of where we live, it becomes a better place to live. Pride is important to me because I don't think you should be ashamed of who you are. I think everyone should be able to say exactly how they feel and be proud to say it out loud, without people discriminating. Pride is what makes our country they way it is today!
