I remember growing up and seeing my grandfather and father placing their hands over their heart and standing up every time they heard the national anthem. I grew up standing up and placing your hand over your heart when you said the pledge of allegiance. I would have never dreamed to do anything different. Those were what I understood patriotic meant.
Patriotism means different things to different people and this is definitely a different world than when I grew up in. That doesn’t make one any less patriotic than I am. It just means they understand it differently.
Due to how I was raised we always enjoy our 4th of July get-togethers and love to display the pride of our flag. I found an amazing site that has adorable patriotic clothes. If you are looking for a cute patriotic shirt then check it out. I love their designs.
Don’t forget to shop early and be prepared for the 4th of July!
