This is also the second Monday of the month which means it's RIPPLES IN THE INKWELL time.
Ripples in the Inkwell #inkripples is a new monthly meme created by Kai Strand, Mary Waibel, and Katie L. Carroll. We’ll be posting on the second Monday of every month with a new topic. We’re all authors, but you don’t have to be to participate. Simply compose your post using the monthly theme, grab one of the images, and link back to the three of us. Make sure to use #inkripples when you play along and promote your posts. The idea is that we toss a word, idea, or image into the inkwell and each post is a new ripple. There’s no wrong way to do it!
July's theme is patriotism.
The themes for the rest of the year are:
August: Dog days/Things that drag you down
October: Fears/Things That Go Bump in the Night
November: Remembrance /Thankfulness
December: Celebration /Gifts
Patriotism may mean different things to different people. To me patriotism is honoring America, the country I live in. Also honoring the men and women that have dedicated their lives to our America. Sometimes a picture says it best.
Patriotism is standing up for America. No, America isn't perfect. It has its faults. Still, I'd rather live here than any other place in the world.
What does patriotism mean to you?
Don't forget to visit Kai, Mary and Katie to see what their thoughts are on patriotism.
If I don't respond quickly, remember I'm without Internet unless I go to the library.
