We all feel an undeniable bond with the land where we were born. And yet, if we leave it for another, we grow to feel a similar bond, often of a more complex nature. Both are forms of patriotism — the first, involuntary, by birth, the second by choice.
Neither is less worthy than the other.
But one is earned.”
― Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration
