We work hard and we build a better nation or at least our ancestors did.

We are responsible for ourselves never seeking undeserved help and we are strong or at least our ancestors were.

We are proud of our accomplishments and the sweat we have shed to construct them or at least our ancestors were.

We place the blame for temporary failure on ourselves and use that failure to inspire us to overcome the next obstacle or at least our ancestors did.

We know what is really important and focus on those things disregarding the trivial or at least our ancestors did.

We enforce our standards steadfastly with little thought as to their acceptance by outsiders or at least our ancestors did.

We are secure in the knowledge that future generations will praise our efforts and marvel at our determination or maybe not.
