If more of us held this attitude, we’d all be better off. Cameron James is one Instrammager who holds it in spades.

For Cameron, doing our part by staying home and keeping others safe is about as patriotic as we can be right now. No one gets out of bed eager for another day in isolation, but for those of us who have the privilege to shelter in the safety of our homes, we must do everything in our power to support those who must fight this virus head-on.

“What do you believe makes a person patriotic?

In my mind, it’s understanding when the needs of society outweigh what’s convenient for myself. It’s having the willingness to sacrifice for the sake of my community.

I don’t love staying home, but right now, it’s not about me. I don’t love wearing a mask, but right now, it’s not about me. I don’t love being away from my friends and family, but right now, it’s not about me. Right now, it’s the least I can do.

We have patriots across our state and across our nation on the frontlines doing their part. Let’s do ours – not for you, not for me, but for us.”
