The Greatest Patriot of All
By: Megan Baumeister
Red, white and blue, what does it mean to you? Does it make you want to sing, or what else does it do? What happiness does it bring? Does it do a lot of things? Or does it give you lots of pride? What does it do for you?
Some people may fight for their country. Sometimes it is even all night. They fight for our freedom because they they said they would. Sometimes doing this could fill them with fright. They always remember this was their choice, not just because they could, and always had known that they should. It is also hard because of the risk that is taken, but they are doing good and are not mistaken.
Some people have a flag in their yard and no one will mind. Being an American patriot is easy as you will see. Just one flag, imagine what it could do. Just one flag, it won’t take too long to do. Being a patriot doesn’t take as much, so try it, give it all you’ve got. What one flag could do might just surprise you.
To be a patriot, people might give our veterans thanks. They have fought for our freedom since we became a country. You will not have to do much, just take a few minutes to thank them. While they were away, their families must have had so many tears. And their friends must have had so many fears. So, being patriotic is easy, just like I said. It’s as easy as wearing red, white, and blue.
So, being a patriot, isn’t that hard. How easy it is might surprise you. Patriots aren’t odd, they belong. It is so easy, why not give it a try? You could do lots of things or just a little. You can be big or small. You have the right to vote because of our type of democratic government. Our veterans have fought for our freedoms. You could be the greatest patriot of all by being patriotic.
