IMHO, we should take no pride in what others do, just as we should take no pride in what we were born with. I didn't choose my parents, and neither did anyone else. So whether we're tall, short, black, white, yellow, etc. is nothing in which any of us should take pride. It's simply a fact of heredity. What's important is what we do with the gifts we inherited. We SHOULD take pride only in what we accomplish ourselves or something to which we actively contribute. On the other hand, we could all buy Indianapolis Colts jerseys and feel good about ourselves while shouting "we're #1!" ;) Java
