To be patriotic is to love and respect your country. It's the feeling you get when you appreciate everything this country has to offer while making sure you spread that joy to others. Patriotism is also the reason we celebrate Independence Day and Memorial Day—one which remembers the day we gained our freedom and the other to honor those who help us keep it. While you get ready to embark in those 4th of July festivities, indulge in delicious 4th of July food, and participate in the most patriotic activities, it's nice to take a step back and bask in your pride.
