As To Patriotism
is not, nor ever has been
an exclusive attribute of loyal Americans.
The term came from Greek to French
and thence into English
in the middle of the sixth century.
Succinctly defined as love of country and loyalty to it,
no matter what the country
and totally independent of race, colour or creed.
One possessing a national pride with a passion
may be thus deemed
and there are patriots within each nation.
Thank the Lord for loyal patriots everywhere
for it is they who are prepared to stand up
in defense of important national issues.
