Welcome to Citizen Hat.org!

A Hat is, of course, a covering for a head, but also is "a role or office symbolized ... by the wearing" of a hat, says the American Heritage Dictionary. When you see a person running into a burning building, you expect to see particular headgear. If the person is wearing a firefighter’s hat, you cheer the hero on, but if not, you wonder what possesses that person. A HAT is the rights, duties and responsibilities that go along with a job.
The Citizen Hat, written by John Chambers, introduces one to his/her hat as a citizen.
