What they really mean to say is that they are proud to be part of a certain group. Being born into a group is the strongest connection people can feel. It's like family. (for many people that's really important.) It's something that can't be taken away, no matter what you do.It perplexes me that people can be proud to have been born in whatever country. Happiness due to this fact I can understand but its not like you actually achieved anything being born wherever.
Anyone out there able to explain to me what makes people think like this?
