Patriotism In Action

Meaning of Patriotism in Action

Patriotism: Love and loyal support of one’s country.

Patriotism in Action: a mindset that expects we will do what we can—great or small—to “be, know, and do” as our best-selves so we have more to give to our families, professions, and country.

Like “active faith,” Patriotism in Action can include though extends beyond singing and remembrance; people are good stewards of their capacities to serve. Yes, we encourage displays of flags and mementoes. We are glad when people feel “the spirit of Old Glory” in their veins. We like memorials as well as parades. Yet, we also believe a true patriot demonstrates the spirit of true professionalism to prepare for and do one’s duty plus to prepare for the call to serve in higher or different ways.

The annual Patriotism in Action Tribute to the Founder of National Veterans Day takes place November 10, 4:30-5, in Birmingham’s Linn Park (across from City Hall and Boutwell Auditorium). Chairman: Col. Bob Barefield (USA Ret); Emcee: Dr. David Dyson; Speaker: Mayor William Bell.
