After participating in a thread that seems to induce pride of homeland, I was wondering...... What is it that makes you proud to be where you are from. I personally am from New England, and Italian heritage. I am proud that industriousness was instilled in me at a young age. I will always be able to find work because of this. You need it done, I can do it and if I can't I can find someone who can. If I don't find work I will still be able to feed my self and and dependent kin due to the green thumb that Nanna passed on. I am proud that I am of sturdy Northern Italian stock. Able to look adversity in the face and figure a way out, thru or around it. What makes you proud?????
