OK, I clicked "Reply" on a chosen comment and it disappeared for some odd reason. It referenced the Legacy of the British Empire, for which I have limited respect, considering its total disregard for those under its rule.
But then, an "accident" occurred. A certain group of British Colonies banded together and chose to become a separate nation, one now known as the United States of America, which, in fact, IS a legacy of Great Britain, since the founders of our glorious United States of America WERE British Citizens UNTIL they renounced their citizenship
Later, when we were RECOGNIZED as a separate and independent nation, we developed friendly diplomatic relations with England.
Later, history records we share a legacy.
