THE CALL FOR CONSCIOUS PATRIOTISM

 

It’s time to reanalyze who we are as a nation, and perhaps it’s time to discuss the concept of patriotism, in what it has been and what it could be now. We’re amidst a time of great upheaval and division in our country. People are familiar with the idea of patriotism, but there are certainly different opinions.

We have an opportunity, if not a serious need, to develop a very intentional brand of patriotism. In the end, it matters not if you want to call yourself a patriot. Really what we’re discussing here is what it means to be a caring citizen. But as a brand developer, I know it’s easier to create a movement when you use a known term like patriotism. Again, I think we have a profound opportunity in front of us, and we should seize it.

It’s time to resist, to reimagine and to be vessels of light and love. And perhaps that’s what a true patriot should do. I hope you’ll join me on this important journey.

HIGHLIGHTS

  •  True patriotism isn’t about loving or hating your government. It’s about holding your government accountable for their actions, ensuring that they uphold a true democracy, and supporting their efforts for peace and unity.
  • True patriots work to improve our government, not destroy it.
  • True patriots don’t pander to any forms of division. They view everyone as a compatriot.
  • They put a tremendous amount of value on the WE in “we the people”.
  • Our money says, “in God we trust” on it. There are Christian sayings all throughout our government. Yet, our government’s actions are so out of line with that. I believe part of patriotism is to push our government into alignment with the things they’ve written to keep them in line.
  • If we influence the leadership of America towards peace and equality, we will have made a powerful play in creating world peace.
