WWE wrestling superstar, John Cena, reminded America what patriotism really means in a video released by the Ad Council on July 4th. In the video Cena states, “Patriotism is love for a country, not just pride in it.”
In the video, Cena asks viewers to close their eyes and picture what the average American looks like. He then goes on to break down statistics explaining that the average American probably looks much different that you pictured.
Cena then says, “This year, patriotism shouldn’t just be about pride of country, but should be about love — love beyond age, disability, sexuality, race, religion and any other labels. Because the second any of us judge people based on those labels, we’re not really being patriotic, are we?”
