Does Citizenship Require Sacrifice?

Almost everyone agrees that citizenship carries with it both rights and responsibilities.  But how far do the responsibilities extend?  Must individuals be willing to sacrifice  something important in order to be good citizens?  Does good citizenship, rightly considered, necessarily  involve some kind of meaningful sacrifice?  Those questions are called here, among a panel of distinguished Maxwell School faculty with a wealth of varied personal, professional, and academic experiences related to the topic.
