Re: Happy Unity Day!

@ Horatio: I understand that you're wary of patriotism. I am, too.

But the fall of a wall that separated people for decades is a reason to celebrate. So is the end of the Cold War. I'm trying not to overthink this.

I'm not going into "Happy Independence Day"-threads to point out all the horrible things Americans did either. Contextual awareness and a relaxed attitude go a long way.
