The lesson of patriotism in the MTC

Nikolai Sidorov, a member of the Children of War organization of the Pervorechensky District of Vladivostok, a retired lieutenant colonel, a member of the Russian Interregional Union of Writers, a member of the Russian Geographical Society - Society for the Study of the Amur Region, was a guest at a literature lesson at the Maritime Technology College. The romance of sea travel has always attracted youth to the fleet. But during the years of the war with fascism, love for the homeland and hatred for the enemy were added to romance. It seemed that such high feelings were not yet inherent in children, but life has shown that the boys of the military generation, those who were 16 years old in those years, were already adult and courageous people. Our meeting was dedicated to the shipboys of fiery voyages, their feat. The boys quickly matured and became real defenders of the motherland. Nikolai Sidorov recited his poems on the feat of the Soviet people during the Great Patriotic War, discussed with the guys the meaning of such concepts as «Homeland», «honor», «conscience», «duty» paying special attention to the word «patriotism» and its semantic significance.
