When patriotism becomes mostly seasonal
Wednesday, July 12, 2017
Following our annual celebration of the 4th of July, reflection is sometimes helpful. A week before this holiday everyone dons a patriotic tie. A week later few do. This is because patriotism for most is seasonal. The event comes and goes. Essentially, the colors red, white and blue are popular for a day and then out. One might even be viewed as "super patriotic" (as though this were bad) to wear that colorful tie a second week.
