Flag Flown High
We were passing the local Saturn dealership yesterday, on our way home from Wal-Mart (good Americans that we are). A massive American flag was waving over the dealership, strung from a larger-than-life flag pole. It was so huge, so striking, we were actually shocked by it. I realized, moments later, how sad that is. It has become such a rarity to see the American flag, hung by itself and in such large form, that we were stunned by its presence. It was a beautiful sight, and unfortunately, becoming less and less part of our culture.
