1. Erosion of National Pride/Identity
If each 12 months the Olympics were held, this probably wouldn’t be a hassle. This list is indicative of the reality that America (like every nation) has issues. The difficulty at hand is collective although amongst the humans affected approximately how to cope with them. Unfortunately maximum oldsters have a tendency to awareness on their self and now not the complete. We see these issues as affecting “them” and not “me/us” whilst we listen that the united state’s children are the fattest amongst western nations, this doesn’t sting. When we research that the United States’s youngsters lay educationally in the back of other industrialized international locations, we don’t recoil.
There is very little feeling of collective identification of people, as individuals. This is a result of our kids no longer being nicely educated and guided. There has been a time when each baby would begin the faculty day by means of standing and reciting the pledge of allegiance. Youngsters have been taught the significance of the 4th of July (except fireworks). These practices are lengthy long gone and so is our experience of not unusual future. With so many diverse nationalities, races, and ethnic groups that include the US, the one not unusual bond all of us have with one another is that we’re Americans.
