For love of country

Friends keep telling me I should stop fighting a battle I cannot win — but when it comes to my beloved country, I won’t stop, even though my country is home to more shallow thinkers than the rest of the world combined. Though I love life, and wish to live many more years, I’m glad I’m 84 and won’t be around as my precious country continues to slide backwards.
