“Patriotism is not a short frenzied burst of emotion, but the long and steady dedication of a lifetime.” [Thomas Jefferson]
One of the pillars of the DAR is the promotion of patriotism. A particular delight of the Omaha Chapter has been to attend the monthly naturalization ceremonies to welcome new citizens. After the oath of citizenship has been administered, a Daughter presents the new citizen with an American flag and other information in commemoration of this eventful day.
Omaha Daughters are reminded of the founding principles of the United States of America and the great privilege of citizenship at each meeting as they recite the Pledge of Allegiance, Preamble to the Constitution, and raise their voices to the national anthem. Monthly meetings also include brief, informational reports on areas of national interest.
