Patriotism

Whenever the word Patriot is spoken there should be a catch in the throat and a bit of sadness in the voice. You see, anyone can wave a flag, anyone can wear a pin, anyone can stand for song they don’t even know all the words to, but to put all your stuff on the line to protect your ideals (even the ones you fall short of) and the lives of your neighbors (even the ones you don’t like) that takes sacrifice and sacrifice is what makes a patriot. Anything less, and you’re just a member of the audience.
