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? 🙂
