    Regarding the use of "s"

    Sentence: "This nation never cease(s) to amaze me."

    My question: Should the word cease have 's' at its end ?

    Thanks

    Absolutely.

    Nation is singular and takes the singular form "ceases."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
