Are you celebrating Flag Day today?
In the face of concerns our country is dealing with should we be celebrating a holiday? Perhaps the best we can do is acknowledge one when tragedy is recent. Perhaps this is the best time to pay tribute to the history and freedoms our flag represents. Perhaps the need is to make celebrating this year's Flag Day a more somber occasion than typical patriotic holidays. No matter an opinion, we are Americans, with a rich and worthy history, in spite of faults. Often gregarious, giving, and gracious, we are Americans! Think about it–being patriotic is good for communities and countries. Thoughts?
I love our flag. We do put a flag and keep it up most of the year. It comes down in the dead of winter. I think it's supposed to. I think there should be more of a celebration than there is. In my town there is nothing.
