Reflection: The importance of national shame

I don't believe that my home country is the best in the world but it is the best in my heart. However, there are still tons of things that we need to improve on, it is essential for us to recognize them. I think us humans try to believe things that are beneficial to us, things that we feel good about. I think it is important to know your flaws in order to improve them. Stop convincing yourself that you're the best, or the country you live in is the best. If we keep thinking of that, we can't improve or make it better! We should enforce our strengths and improve our weaknesses.
