A local radio station has posed the question: what are you doing that is truly patriotic this Fourth of July? Patriotism is one of Japhet’s character qualities and involves more than watching fireworks and wearing red, white, and blue. It focuses on knowing and exercising our rights as citizens, staying informed about current issues, and protecting basic human rights that provide freedom, justice, and equality. Being patriotic is about having a dialogue without degrading and casting judgment on others, and being an active citizen for the good of all. Happy Independence Day!
