Daily Prompt: I Pledge Allegiance

Are you patriotic? What does being patriotic mean to you?

I think I am patriotic. To be patriotic   means to support my country through thick and thin. Sometimes it’s not easy to do when my country’s politicians make wrong choices.

It means to buy products that have made in Canada label. This again is not working out for me, there aren’t that many products that have the label I’m looking for. For example most of the clothing we buy have foreign labels.  The reason the businessmen make more money outsourcing.

So you see even though I want to,  the circumstances are beyond my control.

When it comes to sports, my favorite team in ice hockey is  the,”Boston Bruins” you may argue they are not a Canadian team,my argument in this respect is, the players in this  team are mostly Canadian.

My favorite baseball team is the, “Toronto Blue Jays” it’s a Canadian team but the players are not from Canada.

This is my dilemma, the clothes I buy are not made in Canada, of the sports team I support, one is an American team with mostly Canadian players, the other one is a Canadian team with majority of players from different countries.

Am I unpatriotic is a question , I ask? 🙂

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this nice post on the topic of being patriotic. We suppose being patriotic could work to solidify a social organism. And then, as we know, it can be used to separate us from the rest of the world.

    All good wishes,

    robert

  2. I think if we support core ideas then we are patriotic. If a dam changes the flow of the water do we stop loving the river?
    Good food for thought Ranu.
    Hugs for your day.
    (sorry I have not visited you as often as I like I am having some health concerns that takes most of my daily energy – you are however dear and in my thoughts)
