Patriotism

by dovetailedlife

When we start equating patriotism with things like this instead of our old definitions I’ll be happy.

Just because someone stands for the pledge of allegiance, doesn’t make them a patriot. It is, like soldiers, putting your actions where your mouth is.

You fight for this country? You are a patriot.

You help a child learn that hard work and discipline will make you a better person? You’re a patriot.

I don’t know if this is some sort of promotional video that Auburn put together to publicize the social work of Cam Newton (there was lots of material like this for Tim Tebow).

In any event, people who give of themselves for others, no matter their profession or hobby, are patriots.

And it is about time this country came to this realization.
