Proof: Getting Captured Makes You Patriotic

“I owe everything to France. France is my home. You are my family. I was in chains all the time, 24 hours a day,...I tried to wear those chains with dignity, even if I felt that it was unbearable.”
-- Ingrid Betancourt (once she was rescued, with American help, from guerrillas in the Colombian jungle) discovering the same love of country I did - after a similar ordeal - living in France, in the New York Times.
