No commentary today, just pictures of the U.S flag to honor and celebrate Flag Day.
Well, maybe a little commentary.
I love that I live in a country where free speech is protected, the government is strengthened by a complicated but fairly competent web of checks and balances, and we continue to evolve. The process can be messy, raucous and sometimes even heartbreaking, but for me, those are the things that the flag represents. In baby steps, we grow and mature, then sometimes slither backward a bit; we swing back and forth between parties like a monkey in a jungle. Even given all that, this ship of state of ours has been one of the most sturdy for the better part of its 241 years.
It’s a grand old flag.
These are all just photos I happened to have of flags…I think I might be a bit compulsive about it. It’s a grand old flag.
P.S. I just realized that Flag Day is one of only a very few national days that isn’t associated with any particular type of food. Hmmm, maybe next year we should start something!
Happy Flag Day!
