First of all it is necessary to strengthen the feeling of an owner in every citizen of Armenia, in order to strengthen patriotic education, President Sargsyan said during the Nation-Army-2017 conference.
“The best defender of a country is the man who realizes his share of responsibility for the Fatherland. Responsibility isn’t an abstract and sublime concept. Responsible is the man who at least has his own corner. Even if he doesn’t, he is sure that he will earn that corner through honest work.
This man will not only create, but will also expand this corner, he will make it his family home. And in this environment he will bring up his children, who will be lled with this same feeling of ownership. I am strongly convinced, this is the best patriotic education. No patriotic education is possible without men and women who have clung to their native land,” the President said.
He added that men and women who were lled by this kind of ownership feeling can educate children who are devoted to their Fatherland, their land and water.
“Such people don’t need patriotic calls or preaching. They directly feel the danger, they stand up to defend their country if needed. The reforms, which are being carried out in our country, are aimed for the strengthening and encouraging of this attitude,” he said.
The President emphasized that the upcoming couple of years will be decisive on this path. According to him, the changes are fundamental and will be signicant and tangible for every citizen of Armenia.
