This cartoon struck a cord with me and I hope it does the same to you. I know the cartoon obviously is American but it also refers to Canada.
Sometimes it seems that today’s youth have no respect for their country and what it means to live in the countries that allow you so much freedom. Men and women for generations fought to give you those freedoms, so as the cartoon shows, would it hurt you to stand for a few seconds to honour your country and the people who sacrificed so much to make it all possible?
It is easy to sit back and say, so what, I didn’t ask anybody to give me these things. I have heard a lot of people say this very same thing and really they were not all young kids. Yup, it is easy to say, when you have them handed to you on a silver platter, but I doubt you would be happy when and if those same things that you take for granted are, someday, are taken away.
If you like what you have then respect your country. Canada is probably one of the best place to live, but, hey if you think you can do better you can always consider moving to another country, like say, one in the Middle east or China or North Korea; I’m sure your attitude will be well respected in those countries..Try it I’m sure you’ll like it
