Slice of Life #59: Patriotism

If you've ever been to Texas, you'll understand
the joke - Texans are still proud of the fact that
they are the only state that was it's own country
before accepted into the Union.

While they're patriotic for America, they are
even more patriotic to TEXAS.

Patriotism - devoted love, support, and defense of one's country; national loyalty.

Since we're not all from the same country on the Internet, a prompt for "Fourth of July" is a bit inappropriate. But everyone has a country they belong to - patriotism isn't just for Americans. I love watching folks from across the ocean speak with enthusiasm for the country they love. In fact, a close friend of mine is from London and she and I had a great time as she explained the significance of the Royal Wedding. I felt like I was standing there with her, cheering in the crowd. It was glorious.

So this week, let your patriotism shine. Let's hear how much you love you country, or how you show it. Do you decorate? Hang a flag in your yard? Sing the national anthem? Teach with love and passion about political affairs? Vote? Etc.... there are as many different ways to show patriotism as there are people. No one views life the same -how does your corner of the world knows you're proud to be a/an _______?

Looking forward to your slice of life this week! :)
