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.
