Patriotism Before this assignment I never really stopped and thought about what the definition of patriotism was or what it means to me Patriotism in itself has a different meaning and definition to everyone but does it really Just because some people show it more than others does that mean the person who shows it more has more patriotism than the person that does not show it does According to the Oxford English Dictionary patriotism means the character or passion of a patriot love of or zealous devotion to ones country But James Fraser a professor of education history and Dean of the school of Education at Northeastern University stated in an article in The Christian Science Monitor There has been a bit of a return to the idea that patriotism is in the hand of the people who support the government and who support the military action and those of us who have real reservations about the government military action have gotten back into a more familiar discomfort with patriotism So does that mean just because you dont agree and support with the government military action that you dont have patriotism Amelia Newcomd a writer for the Christian Science Monitor wrote an article on Nov 20 2001 In that article she stated Patriotism comes in a lot of different forms ones that often clash despite a common foundation Since Sept 11th its been hard to travel a city block or stretch of highway without seeing some red white and blue Those splashes for many have been a welcome sign of solidarity a quick way to share common ground as Americans When I think of patriotism I think of our flag as the banner of the freedom seekers risk takers democracy builders rebels and pioneers A liberty of loving people Our flag is made of strong democratic cloth artfully designed and painstakingly stitched together
