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.
