I know I’m a day late (it’s July 5th) in posting about Patriotism, but since this is a different approach to the traditional “patriot” reference, I thought it would probably be OK with you if I was a little outside the box. I’m usually there anyway.
I saw a post on a friend’s Facebook page from yesterday and it moved me. It was John Cena (the WWE star turned actor who looks like a bigger version of Mark Wahlberg) walking down a typical city street that looked like it could be just about anywhere, talking about “patriotism” and what it truly means to be an American. Now I know not everyone shares the same views that I do that love is love and everyone has the right to find love in their life, no matter what preferences they have – but you really can’t ignore the statistics about what the “average American” is.
So instead of trying to rephrase what Mr. Cena said so eloquently, I’ll just let you watch for yourself.
I hope you had an amazing 4th of July holiday and that you stayed safe, and I hope that this video helps expand your heart and acceptance for ALL of the Americans out there, regardless of your own beliefs. As the video states, love has no labels.
