In the coming week, many Americans will celebrate the independence of our nation. Over the last week or so, I have seen Old Glory, the symbol of our nations rich heritage and freedom, popping up all over the place. There is just something about the flag, displayed correctly, that strikes chords of humility, gratitude, respect, and pride deep within me.
Seeing the flag displayed incorrectly also does something to me, though far less pretty. Honestly, it aggravates me to no end. I can’t tell you how many times I have been tempted to knock on a door and explain flag etiquette to innocent offenders. Rather than risk life, and limb, I am sharing a gentle reminder here… celebrate with honor and respect!
Have fun, and be safe, as you celebrate this week!
