    The term “patriotism” is simply defined in dictionaries as the love of one’s country’Â. But in actuality, it takes more than just the love  that drives heroes; many others who have sacrificed so much of their life and efforts in order to make their country a better place to live in for their fellow citizen.There are many avenues to do your country proud. You can participate in sports, conferences and so on. However, being patriotic and loyal is the best way to do your country historical proud.
    Certainly, the overflowing emotion of patriotism is more evident during the war times or at times of crisis. At peace, the people are expected to keep hold of the same feeling of concern and loyalty towards their country and fellowmen who been sacrifieced for peace and prosperity of the country of the braves.
    Without patriotism, nations will still be in chaos. People will be enslaved by other countries and deprived of their freedom. Patriotism is the glue that unites a country and the people. It is important because it allows people to appreciate the efforts done by the heroes before them in order to attain the freedom that most countries are enjoying nowadays.
    Patriotism allows a nation to take pride of the country’s past, present, and future achievements. And in doing so, it allows the public to always strive for progress, encourages citizens to take part in the nation’s decision making, and helps in maintaining peace within the country as well as fighting the various issues that threatens it. Therefore as one who chose to be an Eritrean, he had to accept the problematic in his adopted home together with the good.
    Nevertheless, history is here to stay that patriotism does not end in respecting the flag, affirming the pledge of allegiance, or even supporting the government and its policies or otherwise. A patriot is concerned with the nation’s advancement in general, which means that he is able to identify the things that hinder a nation’s growth and development, in addition to the willingness and exerting selfless effort to make a genuine change in the newly born country.
