Show reverence for flag

SHARE Show reverence for flag

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.
