Showing Our Patriotism During Difficult Times
The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed our way of life. We miss casual shopping outings, dining out in restaurants, and the simplest of things often taken for granted such as hugs, handshakes and high-fives. As we work through the upheaval that this pandemic has thrown upon us and worry about our health and the health of others, one thing remains certain and it’s something that can never be taken away from us: our patriotism.
If you’re struggling to find your patriotic spirit as the pandemic rages on, you’re not alone. We’re all being put to the test. Nevertheless, there are things we can do to show off our patriotism—even during these uncertain times. Here are a few ways to show our patriotism during difficult times:
Come Together, Regardless of Party Lines
One way to show American patriotism is to join forces with all Americans regardless of political affiliations. There has been much divide due to political party association in the past. Now, more than ever, it’s vital to come together with our fellow Americans and show a patriotic front to work together to make this coronavirus pandemic a thing of the past.
Whether Democrat, Republican or Independent, we must join together as a country and fight this pandemic as one. The virus doesn’t care about partisan politics, and we need to look past our differences if we’re going to come together to overcome it.
Applaud and Support American Heroes
Another way to be patriotic during these tough times is to applaud and support our American heroes. Show our healthcare professionals, first responders, military members, grocery store workers, transportation professionals and all other essential business workers that we are behind them.
This can be done by physically applauding their efforts, providing them with delivery food items, or simply writing cards or creating signs of encouragement. We can join together as a country and show those working for us and for the benefit of our health that we are behind them 100%.
Rally Around the Flag
As we face this crisis head on, it’s the perfect time to embrace our patriotism and support those around the country. We can easily show our patriotism by rallying around the American flag. If you haven’t done so already, hang the American flag outside your door or place small American flags in your garden to show your patriotic spirit. We are all in this together and engaging in this fight against the coronavirus as a unified nation is essential.
Flying the flag or putting your red, white and blue apparel on display is a great way to show others that you stand united with them. Anyone else flying the flag will know immediately that your patriotic spirit is strong, and together, you’re unified.
Fill Out Your United States Census 2020 Form
The United States Census Bureau collected information for the Census in 2020, and it’s very important that you filled out your census form. The census determines how federal funds are distributed amongst the states and the number of congressional seats for each state.
It’s easy to forget about this necessary task during the current pandemic, but it’s essential that you complete it. By filling out the Census 2020 form, you’re doing your patriotic duty for the benefit of your country, state, and local community. Make sure you and your family get counted accordingly, so you can bring much-needed federal dollars into your community, to fund the programs that’ll help everyone get back on their feet post-pandemic.
Don’t Forget to Vote
it’s important to vote in any upcoming elections, at the local, state or federal levels. There are many governmental elections taking place in the coming months, so you want to be sure to vote, make your voice heard and fulfil your patriotic duty by helping to decide who gets elected. Cast your vote for someone who represents you and your community, who you believe will act in your best interests and the interests of those relying on them.
Showing your patriotism is something that should never be put on hold, no matter what’s transpiring in the country at the time. In fact, now is an even more important time to band together as a country and do all that we can for the benefit of our nation.
