Education on patriotism for future generations is vital for restoring and revitalizing patriotism. It will show the importance of community involvement, which is a form of patriotism. Our heritage as Americans is rich in lessons for learning about people to celebrate and stories and songs to repeat. It’s a great way to get involved and unite within the community. Future generations would be lost without education in our history. We need to invest in the preservation of America’s history and education on patriotism for our future generations – the leaders, innovators, and teachers of tomorrow.
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”~President Reagan
Our Leaders of Tomorrow
There is a serious decline in humanity throughout our country. We need to teach children, leaders of tomorrow, about patriotism and respect. First, they need to understand why it is important. It should be incorporated into a child’s education starting with the Pledge of Allegiance and why we respect our flag and also taught at home. Our leaders of tomorrow want to grow up in a community where they can feel safe and secure.
Our military servicemen and servicewomen have a deep love for our country; they risk their own lives to protect our freedom and way of life. Police, firefighters, and all who work to protect and serve show their undying loyalty, dedication, and bravery for doing their jobs – very often risking their lives to save others. Education about patriotism and respect can make a huge difference for future leaders. The University of Texas at Austin commencement address by Admiral William H. McRaven suggests how the next generation can make a change.
Our country’s current state of affairs magnifies the importance of patriotism in American culture. We need to educate our children about its meaning and bring awareness to the next generation.
Our mission is to foster American patriotism through community engagement. This includes educational, patriotic and community solutions to all Americans. There is a steady decline in patriotism in younger generations, so now is the time to take action and preserve it – our American culture and history – for today and for our future.
We can all make a positive change in our communities and strengthen our nation’s patriotism. Make a difference. Be part of the Powering Patriotism movement.
