World Class?

Why do we need validation from outside before we appreciate ourselves?

By "outside", I meant "other countries". Why do we wait for award-giving bodies from other countries to bestow prestige to one of ours before we even take notice? We had to wait for CNN to tell us that Efren PeƱaflorida is a hero. We took the cue from Ellen and Oprah before we noticed that Charice Pempenco has an astounding voice box.

Look out! Rhetorical question coming through...
Do we really need external approval before we take pride in ourselves?
