I hope you find USA Patriotism! an inspiring place to visit that makes you want to return often to see more expressions of love and pride of the United States of America and all those who have helped to make it the great country it is today!
The idea of a site about patriotism started to formulate shortly after the hateful terrorists' attacks on September 11, 2001 and with my youngest son in the Marines. And in early 2002, USA Patriotism! came to be . . . and will always be about expressing and experiencing... love and pride of America and non-political.
I also appreciate the many wonderful, heartfelt thoughts expressed about USA Patriotism! and me from fellow patriots. Each one is valued greatly . . . and none more so than learning about how one of my poems touched a troop or a loved one of a troop in harms way. (You will also find links to my articles listed at USA Patriotism and my non-patriotic poems at Poetry Galore.)
Moreover, the same can be said of all the fellow patriots who have contributed to USA Patriotism! with poems, articles, stories, songs / music, graphics, media presentations, owners of the listed patriotic sites and more along with the honored stars for being there for the troops.
Rest assured USA Patriotism! is here to stay with its ongoing mission to foster... better awareness, reinforcement, and display of love and pride of America by her citizens . . . along with developing a better understanding and friendlier attitude about the USA from citizens of other countries.
Another important goal for USA Patriotism! is to provide scholarships to deserving students based upon established criteria and selection process. Interested individuals, corporations, and other organizations of like mind are welcome to contact me about how they can partner with me in this effort.
