Do you love your country?

The Aisa's World City no longer sounds impressive to me.
New York's got Wall Street, New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ, what do we have? The relatively lowly Stock Exchange of Hong Kong.
There are world-class institution like Columbia University and New York University, while we still still argue daily over whether we should teach with English or chinese.
Hong Kong is overcrowded, some of us don't even have enough room to strech out.
okay, that's enough....
Do you love your city and why?

I love my country and I'm proud of it too. Every country has it's pre's and contra's, and so do the Netherlands, but it's still great to live here, and yes, I love it here.

I love my country - I just detest some of the people running it..

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy.

"Ohhhhhhh Canada! My home and native land......."

Yes, I love my country, though, like vw43, I detest some of our leaders! I've often said that "goverment" is just another word for "organized crime"!

yes, the county of liberty, capitalism, and republicanism (not democracy) created by the founding fathers, which is not the way the country has been heading for many decades

I love Hong Kong, even though we are facing a lot of problems at the moment economically, it is only by uniting together, that our home will grow stronger.

I don't care whether other country has a larger stock exchange or got prestigious universities, Hong Kong is my home, I am proud of it, it will be forever my home no matter what happen even though my physical body is not there.

Sometimes we dwell on too much about material world, sometimes it is diffcult to ignore that, but very soon you will realize that all these are nothing compare to your root, a place where you grow up.

And you will miss it when you are no longer there.

I love the USA for what it should stand for, not for what it does stand for.
