How 2020 Has Improved Our Patriotic Spirit
The year 2020 has been a difficult one for many Americans. From the coronavirus pandemic to job instability due to the virus, individuals have faced many hurdles that make saying goodbye to 2020 a welcome event. But during it all, patriotism was still alive for many Americans. In fact, some might say that the patriotic spirit has even improved despite the tumultuous year that was 2020.
Patriotism was bolstered as it accomplished the following things:
Showing Us We Are Americans First
No matter what political party we affiliate with, we do so under one nation. We come together with others throughout the country as citizens of the United States of America. We are individuals with our own personal beliefs, but we are also collectively American citizens who have a responsibility to represent our country in the best possible light.
Showing Us We Are United
American citizens are united as one even though we come from different locations and live different lives. By uniting together, we can take on whatever obstacles come our way and work together to overcome them. Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, for example, citizens have come together to help others through this difficult time. Perhaps it was lending a hand to a neighbor in need or maybe it was donating money or necessities to individuals the donor has never even met. In many ways, citizens united to help others. And when individuals come together to do good, the possibilities are endless.
Showing Us We Are Resilient
It might be difficult to believe at times, but there truly are positive results that have come out of 2020. One extremely important aspect that resulted from 2020 is the resiliency of America. We as Americans have faced unprecedented occurrences throughout the year and done so with strength, determination, and a resilient nature. All these factors will help us going forward in 2021 as we take on any new challenges that may occur along the way.
The year 2020 may have presented us with unfathomable situations, but with our patriotic spirit we will band together and over come.
