LAND OF THE FREE

Question Of The Week, July 4, 2016

OUR INDEPENDENCE DAY 


What does it mean to be patriotic?

If you're full of patriotism, you're full of love for your country. Patriotism is associated with serving your country and waving the flag.

Sometimes I think patriotism is dangerous. Too often it seems to go hand in hand with thinking our country is perfect. Which none of them are. Love it - yes. But see its faults and try to improve as well...

Elephant Child said it so well... I do get a little misty when I hear the Nat'l Anthem.

I agree with Elephant Child. There are aspects of the UK I am proud about. The National Health Service is one of them.

I also agree with Elephant's Child. I do not love my country right or wrong but appreciate we have possibly the best country available. I will do what I am able to keep it that way and work to correct the wrong.

Your country of birth is like your parent hence motherland. We love our parents no matter what.

I love my country but don't think I'm particularly patriotic. I don't have flags or paint my lawn chairs in red white and blue, not in the national green&gold either.
It's home, that's why I love it.
