We believe in patriotism, love of our great country. Men and women who serve in our military have the ultimate patriotism. They are willing to serve, defend and in some cases give their lives for their country – our country, America.
The positive things that can be said of our nation are ones attained through the blood, sweat and tears of many different types of soldiers: our forefathers, who literally gave their lives for our nation. They framed the Constitution and it still stands today as one of the single greatest documents ever written. It ensured many rights for us and our “pursuit of happiness.”
Soldiers, whether Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard or Marines are all soldiers serving our country and keep it safe. They may go by different names: soldiers, seamen, airmen, guardsmen and Marines, they are all soldiers to us. We do not distinguish between which branch of our served they serve it – they serve and they are our soldiers for freedom.
We owe a great deal of gratitude and respect to those who are willing to “lay down their life for his friend,” John 15:13.
So when you have the chance, hang a flag in your yard, or on your car or truck. More importantly, hold one in your heart and hold it high. Be proud to be an American, “let freedom ring” because we are “the land of the free and the home of the brave.” Our servicemen and women are a large part of why it is.
While we may be patriotic, we can’t all serve in the military , be a policeman or fireman, but we can serve in other ways.
How can you express your patriotism?
