For me or for my culture?

I think it’s a beautiful thing that our American culture seeks equal rights for each individual, demands freedom and independence for anything we want to do, and prizes finding ourselves.

But I wonder if we’ve swung so far on the┬ápendulum that we have begun to demand that our culture cater to our needs, more than trying to become what our community needs us to be for it.

I know I recognize this very well, because I do it myself. God, please help us.
