What Is Patriotism

What is Patriotism?
Is it men and women being taken away from their families?
Is it strangers in an airport, clapping when soliders come in?
Or is it the nation's colors?

Patriotism is what you feel.
Patriotism is children crying
When they see their loved ones.
Patriotism is strangers and companies supporting our troops.
Patriotism is fighting for what you believe in.

This Poems Story

I am a high school student at Clinton High School in Massachusetts. My hobbies are reading, writing, and listening to music. I live with my dad, step-mother, step-sister, and newborn neice. This poem was inspired by my English teacher at school. I want to get the message across that patriotism didn't vanish after 9/11.
