To me patriotism means being loyal to your country at all times, and supporting what it stands for and does. There are many people who are patriotic; it’s not just veterans’ of one’s country. Patriotism is shown in many ways; some are more drastic and noticeable than others. Some people put flags outside of their house, others have more attention-grabbing ways; like this guy who decorated his entire car with the bumper stickers that say “I’m heartbroken for NY.” There is no right or wrong way to be patriotic, or any law that says you have to be a patriotic person. I believe you should support your country because they do so much for you, even if you disagree or are ungrateful for what is being done.

I agree whit your statement that there are many ways of being patriotic. Many people may not see how a teacher may be patriotic, but when a teacher is teaching students they are furtering the advance of our country. Everyone is patriotic in their own way.

I also agree that there are many ways that a person can be patriotic, but I do think necessarily that showing a flag is patriotic. It is is just reminiscent of patriotism.
