A reformer's patriotism

Obama's Patriotic Call - Washington Post

Nicely said:

"We cannot meet the future, either by mere gross materialism or by mere silly sentimentalism; above all, we cannot meet it if we attempt to balance gross materialism in action by silly sentimentalism in words." - Theodore Roosevelt

"Loving your country shouldn't just mean watching fireworks on the Fourth of July; loving your country must mean accepting your responsibility to do your part to change it." - Barack Obama
