Now, I understand that many of us call a different country home, but regardless where we live, we at Sir Wylde believe it's quite important to be a good, contributing citizen. For us, this is in regards to The United States of America, for you this could be Japan, France, Mexico, Canada, England, or many other places.
So what exactly does it mean to be a good, contributing citizen?
In order to answer this question, I believe it is first important to look at the definition of two words: (1) citizen and (2) country. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, a "citizen" is a person who legally belongs to a country and has the rights and protection of that country. According to the same dictionary, a "country" has two definitions: (1) an area of land that is controlled by its own government and (2) the people who live in a country. I feel there is some significance to the second definition of country. When I reference a country, I do not just mean a government run organization, but rather a group of people. Therefore being a good citizen is more than just paying your respects to a certain flag, but more importantly it is giving back to the people that are around you.
So here are a few of our suggestions for being a good citizen. Obviously this isn't a perfect list, however, we feel that these suggestions will help you move in the right direction:
