It’s time to reanalyze who we are as a nation, and perhaps it’s time to discuss the concept of patriotism, in what it has been and what it could be now. We’re amidst a time of great upheaval and division in our country. People are familiar with the idea of patriotism, but there are certainly different opinions.
We have an opportunity, if not a serious need, to develop a very intentional brand of patriotism. In the end, it matters not if you want to call yourself a patriot. Really what we’re discussing here is what it means to be a caring citizen. But as a brand developer, I know it’s easier to create a movement when you use a known term like patriotism. Again, I think we have a profound opportunity in front of us, and we should seize it.
It’s time to resist, to reimagine and to be vessels of light and love. And perhaps that’s what a true patriot should do. I hope you’ll join me on this important journey.
