Hi Sister! I haven't totally dropped it because you made a great point. Every country has people that feel proud about their country. In Germany, their National Anthem was "Deutschland Uber Alles". It was taken away for awhile because it translated to "Germany over All", and those outside of Germany after WW2 thought that it was an anthem that promoted Germany over other countries. But actually, the anthem was about loving Germany. The anthem is back. Everyone has a certain amount of pride about their countries. Now, I have to ask Georgie when "Waltzing Matilda" will become her official National Anthem. Unofficially, it already is . . . .
