The Patriot

Through the Looking GlassMark Twain once said…

“Patriotism is supporting your country all the time,
and your government when it deserves it.”

Patriotism is not about who is in the White House… it is about taking pride in the fundamental beliefs that made this country great.

It’s easy to lose patriotic fervor when you disagree with politicians and their policies. It’s easy to fall into discouraged complacency when we believe that those who were chosen to lead us are taking us down the wrong path.

However…

I would contend that such times are the VERY times that we need to show our patriotic colors. During such times, we need to take a stand for the principles that our country was founded on.

We need to declare that we are still “one nation under God”, regardless of what the courts, they cynics, and the skeptics say.

As we prepare to celebrate our nation’s 237th birthday this week, let us remember the words of John F. Kennedy…

“Ask not what your country can do for you…
ask what you can do for your country.”

May God bless America.
