Proud Patriotism


Thank you for your editorial June 30th regarding true patriots. It was nice to read a bi-partisan opinion instead of the usual newspaper piece as …”yet another club to pound the political opponents.”

The disturbing factor involving patriotism today is the fact we see so many people who don’t seem to have that patriotic view.

“A Gallup survey released Friday showed levels of patriotism are at their lowest levels since 2000. Just 36 percent of liberals said they are extremely proud to be American and a little more than a third of 18-29 year olds said the same.”

I love this country. I hope we all stand together and continue to make her the best she can be.

Wishing you a happy patriotic 4th!
