Have we the American people lost all reverence, honor and respect for the very symbol of the freedoms this great country has to offer — our flag?
Recently, I attended the local Fourth of July parade and was shocked to see few spectators stand and salute the flag as it passed. I am dismayed that our attitude toward the flag has become one of indifference. What would our Founding Fathers think?
I urge all to please remember, especially with the 24th of July festivities in a few weeks, to rise, place your hand on your heart and exhibit a little more reverence as that great American flag passes by.
