A True Patriot
Working together for a common goal... taking care of each and every one of us... helping each other out... pulling resources... standing up for equality for all... and standing strong on the principles that this country was built upon... that's what being a patriot is all about. Being a working, law-abiding, voting citizen... that's an American patriot. "All men are created equal" and "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses" are a few of the examples of how we should be living as Americans... every day. It shouldn't take a tragedy to bring us together.
Putting a ribbon on the antenna or a magnet on the back end of the car or a picture of 9/11 as your Facebook profile picture doesn't make you a patriot. If you want to be a patriot, I suggest you start with the verbs in the definition... Love and Devotion.
