According to Google, the definition of Patriotism is “the quality of being patriotic; vigorous support for one’s country.” I believe that Patriotism is the love you have for your country. We are so blessed to live in such a diverse country that is full of equality, love and most of, freedom. Patriotism is the commitment and devotion veterans and soldiers make to fight for our independence. Our soldiers fight on the battlefield daily for our freedom, sometimes even sacrificing their lives for us. I am thankful for all of the women and men who fought and are still fighting for our freedom.
