We have forgotten what patriotism really is. Patriotism is not racism or rioting. These are divisive and destructive. Patriotism is not kneeling while our country is being honored. Kneeling is showing disrespect to all people of all races who have sacrificed and who are sacrificing.
Webster defined patriotism this way. Love of one’s country; the passion which aims to serve one’s country, either in defending it from invasion, or protecting its rights and maintaining its laws and institutions in vigor and purity. patriotism is the characteristic of a good citizen, the noblest passion that animates a man in the character of a citizen.
Patriotism is about character. These professional athletes are not exhibiting what it means to be a good citizen. They believe they are to big to fail. I personally gave up on the NFL last year. I have found something better to do with my time than to watch the unpatriotic acts of these people who are abusing their freedom. It will not be long before those freedoms are forgotten.
It is not enough for Americans to say they are fed up. What America needs now more than ever is the most patriotic act anyone can do. America needs to return to the Lord. We must go back to church and fall on our knees and pray for our country. Have a burden for the USA!
