Chapter 6, Page 14, Book 19


America was not built on fear. American was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.

Harry S. Truman 

June 14th- patriotic spirit


If we love our country we should also love our countrymen.

Ronald Regan

Its Flag Day and I got to thinking about what it means to be a patriot. I consider myself to be a patriotic person, I love my country and honor the the flag, but I’m thinking it takes more than that.

It’s about respecting the place of your birth, it’s a desire for progress, It’s about wanting to be better.   

Its  a person who loves and defends his or her country and its interests with devotion.  

Patriotism is easy to understand in America.  It means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country.

Calvin Coolidge

I think you defined patriotism very well, Ma! I love being an American; can't imagine being anything else. I truly like all the freedoms we have here! I'm sure lots of people will have their flags raised today for Flag Day!

Nothing thrills my soul more than thinking of God and Country. I have traveled in many countries, but since this is home, no country compares to the USA and YES i love and respect our country and its Flag. When I see the Ensign of our country I remember those who gave the ultimate to protect it.
Thinking of you, we have a little cool too!
