Day 89: N is for Nebraska
Patriotism is very interesting to me. I found it strange while travelling in the States to see such overwhelming patriotism. Think: American flags on at least one house on most streets, flags in stores, American themed drinks/meals, etc.
I feel that Canadians talk the talk of patriotism a lot of the time, while Americans blatantly, and unapologetically, walk the walk. Maybe this is something we could adopt more as Canadians? Then again, maybe it's too much? I'm not sure, but there is something comforting to me in the thought of people backing their country and being proud of where they come from.
Hooray for Canada. That includes Québec.
