Good challenge, nice publication.
The reality of those of us who are outside or far from our countries of origin can feel a strange sensation that something is missing.
At least it is my feeling, regardless of whether we are well off where we are. The rooting to "our thing" is part of our being, I'll tell you something...
Recently I heard the Venezuelan national anthem, by chance, it was happening in a commercial place in Bogota, and they were going to play Colombia and Venezuela. Wow, it was impressive what I felt when I heard the notes of the National Anthem.
To feel proud of your country, is something we should all keep in mind, because regardless of the conditions that lead one to leave and move away from it, you will always have a part of your country in you .
