Here's a link to a fantastic post on Patriotism by a woman who knows what she's talking about. Nicki has the background and intelligence to talk about this subject and I found this post to be nearly perfect. Please take a moment to go there and read it. Leave her a comment as well.
I've added her blog to our Warrior Roll as well (belatedly, shame on me).
Another fierce Warrior who is already on The Long Ride. Our cup runneth over.
