    It's a noun - el sentir, un solo sentir


    sentir2.


    1. m. Sentimiento del ánimo.
    2. m. opinión (dictamen).

    Here's an example:
    Aparicio expresa el sentir de una ciudad «dolorida» por los atentados

    ABC.es - ‎31/07/2009‎
    Con el recuerdo aún muy vivo del atentado contra la casa cuartel de Burgos

    Thanks, Aztlaniano. But, if that is the case, shouldn't it be translated?

    ...with a great deal of emotion at seeing our country brought together behind one motto or sentiment: I love my country.
