There were many Filipinos who died for our
democracy, freedom, and independence.
Some fought using their pens and tongues,
while some used the power of their arms and
weapons. Each had their own way of showing

today’s generation, let us value and treasured
our heroes sacrifices and devotion for our

generation, there are things that test
our nationalism. What is important
though is that we stand united as
Filipino people and we love
Philippines as our mother country. Let
us manifest the essence of
nationalism in every aspect of our
life.
PATRIOTISM
Patriotism is a devotion of love for
one’s country for no other reason
than being a citizen of that country.
It is a common virtue that pertains to
the love for a nation, with more
emphasis on own values and beliefs.
One who is patriotic will be ready to
make any sacrifice for his own
country. He will never live selfishly
for himself alone.
SOLDIER
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN:

NATIONALISM PATRIOTISM
Nationalism – This implies a heartfelt
dedication for love, care and
preservation of the Philippines and
everything that is identified with it:
The Philippine territory, the
inhabitants, the Philippine
sovereignty, all things that represent
and symbolize the country; the
aspirations, hopes, dreams and needs
of the Filipino people.
Patriotism is taken from the word
“pater” which literally means “father”.
It is the willingness and determination
to lay down one’s life for the
fatherland.
It is the result of being a nationalistic.
One cannot be patriotic
without being nationalistic.

Mostof us are nationalist


but not a patriot.
As the famous poet Rabindranath Tagore said that Patriotism is
more important than Nationalism. A patriot loves his own country
but he does not hate the people of other countries. A nationalist
might consider his own nation important and hate the people of
other nations. A patriot is international in his outlook. He is broad-
minded. and tolerant. He is a citizen of the world. A nationalist may
be narrow-minded. He may think in terms of his own country and
hate all those who are not his countrymen.
*Food for thoughts*

In Philippines, today, we are lacking in patriots largely due to the


diffusion of Filipino values, culture, influence of the conquistadores,
and the confluence of historical bad governance. The Philippine state
is in dire need of statesmen who truly understand the basics of
politics-politics is being defined as the systematic study of the state.
The state is being defined as having four basic elements: Territory,
People (who are nationalistic and patriotic), sovereignty (freedom
from foreign dictates) and government (Representative of the people
to stand and fight for Filipino interest, dreams, aspirations, and hope.
For as long as our political leaders is blinding us of this things, for as
long as the Filipino people refuse to learn, for as long as we remain
mediocre, for as long as we could not change our self inwardly, for as
long we refuse to change, nationalism and patriotism will only be
words in dictionary.
