Today we honor the brave souls who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. My
first second attempt at sharing my world is reflective of this day. Thinking deeply about it, those sacrifices are why I’m able to share my opinions in the first place.
In your opinion, does patriotism require the belief that one’s country is the greatest on earth? By definition, patriotism is love of or devotion to one’s country. You can love and be devoted to someone without always liking them so I’d say no. Don’t read too much into that. I’m my daddy’s girl. I bleed red, white, and blue.
Why is patriotism considered by some to be the highest of virtues? Hmm. Perhaps because it demonstrates unconditional love and devotion? If it isn’t fanatical, that’s a beautiful thing to witness.
What is so important about love of country? The sense of community it brings. Unity is powerful.
Shouldn’t we be more concerned about humankind, or the planet as a whole, rather than a single country? Polly Anna over here thinks we can do both.
What is the relationship between decisions and consequences? Owning your decisions means you’re willing to accept the consequences. I’m an over thinker who doesn’t make decisions without first considering what are the consequences. Always doing a mini CBA in my brain. Should I or shouldn’t I? That is the question 😊
What is social justice? An illusion.
and one ‘easy’ one because those others? Fairly difficult. What’s one body part you wouldn’t mind losing? (told you. Silly). An earlobe.
Gratitude: What is something that made you smile during the past week? Not much sadly. I’m in a funk. Though I’m thankful for coworkers who make me laugh 🤭
