We see them with the eyes of a father, mother, grandparent, other loved one, teacher, coach, or an unknown adult . . . thinking of them as children going about their daily lives attending school and doing whatever else might be on their busy young life's schedule that each of us once had back then.
And just like each of us older ones they are patriots too just more fresh and new about love and pride of the USA and expressing it for others to see and hear beyond the trusted ones who are most dear and always near to them at home and in school.
They are our student patriots, our youngest generation, learning to take their place in America's rich heritage of being there in the name of freedom and justice.
I wrote my poem, "Student Patriots", and created the video to remind all ... that America will always be blessed with patriots from Her youngest generation who will take up the mantle to preserve our blessed USA ... doing what they must to keep her the shinning beacon of freedom!
Hopefully, it will also encourage students through the 12th grade to express their pride of the USA creatively . . . in the Student Patriots section at USA Patriotism! . . . It can be a poem, essay, short story, artwork, photograph, and/or video.
