I just want to believe in this country again.

And I feel some kind of way that I can't safely post that anywhere but here.

5. 2 questions.

1. What does it mean "to believe in this country again"?

2. Why would you not feel safe to post that thought here?

8. 1. Just an ounce of hope that things can be better

2. I do feel safe posting this here. I do not posting it on any other media.

9. Oops. Reading comprehension would be good.

I see that I misread the latter statement about where you feel safe posting the sentiment. Apologies for the misreading.

The true sign of a patriot isn't undying and unconditional love for your country. A true patriot recognizes the flaws, accepts that there is work to be done, and works to make their country better. Right wingers with their "Love it or leave it" mentality have poisoned the idea of patriotism.

Thanks for the words about patriotism. They help.

7. That is my normal mindset. But this pandemic and everything during has really shattered that for me.

I hope I get it back.

10. There are signs all over regarding our country's comeback

Our record breaking development of the COVID vaccines and the Mars landing are both testaments to two things. Our scientific abilities and our can do mentality. That plus our undying Democracy and record breaking votes, our election of the first woman VP show our determination to right this country in the span of one presidential term.

Were good and were righteous even though we stumble occasionally.

12. Yes! Those are all really amazing things!

They've been buried by some truly wretched human behavior but they still happened!
