I owe allegiance and loyalty to the country of my citizenship, and am duty bound to uphold its constitution. I have a sense of gratitude to this country where I as an adult learned to stand on my own two feet.

 

At the same time I share bonds of love with the country of my birth. I will always share that bond of respect, honor, gratitude for all that I gained and received, all my memories, and experiences of growing up.

 

If there ever be a conflict of interest between my country of citizenship and my country of birth, I don't know what I would do. Move to Switzerland maybe.  But if I feel either country is taking a stance that I feel is morally wrong or against general global interest and welfare - then I will stand for what I feel is right and against what I feel is wrong.
