Come see us tomorrow at #craftoberfest2017 💁🏼
TOMORROW NIGHT! ✨ Shop locally crafted goods and sip craft beer under the stars at @craftoberfest. 🌵 I'll be there with my little plant guys. Come hang with me and @brookeebuchanan as we get drunk and eat a shit ton of guac from the @missiontacojoint truck. 🍻
Patriotism is not just standing and showing respect to a flag. It isn’t just placing that flag outside your door. It isn’t just placing a bumper sticker on your car that says “Support The Troops” on it. It isn’t just casting your vote in a voting booth. And it isn’t just showing respect to a veteran.
Are all those things patriotic? To some, yes. But if you stop there I believe you’ve stopped short.
Patriotism is taking an active role in your community. It’s having those difficult conversations about race and sexism with people you may not know well, and some you do know well. Patriotism is questioning the status quo and wondering how we can be better. It’s making sure America is a place everyone is proud to call home. Patriotism is being faced with a hard truth and examining where you fit into the fabric of our diverse nation.
Don’t sell patriotism short. It is a lot of different things to a lot of different people.
