What are the characteristics of a patriot?Recently there is a wave of national pride and patriotism in our country. People are talking a lot on this and differentiating between the patriotic fellows and the others. As a matter of fact, we all are the citizens of this country and naturally we all are patriots and concerned for the solidarity of our country.
It is very difficult to find out who is not a patriot. If we say a particular person is not patriotic it will be an offending statement and will hurt the individual. I think we should not assign a label of non patriotism on anyone without any proper investigation or proof.
What in your opinion are the characteristics of a patriot? How can we identify one? Please share your opinion.
