Signs of Patriotism

As I ran around my little part of the country this weekend, I saw signs of patriotism. So many people appreciate the freedom we have, and it shows.

Concerts and parades were scheduled to celebrate the Fourth of July and the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Fireworks have gone off every night for days. Americans still love the USA!

Enjoy these pictures of our American Spirit!


Even the sunset seemed to show a little American pride.

Flag of the Week


If you don't have a place to hang a flag, there are many creative ways to show your patriotism.






Love your country. Your country is the land where your parents sleep, where is spoken that language in which the chosen of your heart, blushing, whispered the first word of love; it is the home that God has given you that by striving to perfect yourselves therein you may prepare to ascend to him. ~Giuseppe Mazzini

Flag of the Week


This week's flag comes from Bald Head Island.


“Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children's children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance.”
― Theodore Roosevelt

American Pride

How do you show American Pride? Do you fly your flag? Vote? Read books about American heroes?

I wanted to share a few recent sightings of American pride.



Here's a quote to ponder.

“Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.”
― George Washington
