Old Glory (with mixed feelings in 2019)



I do not fly the flag every day, but reserve it for days of special meaning  such as New Year's Day, The Revd. Dr. Martin Luther King Day, President's Day, Labor Day, Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving, etc (and a few more).

I fly it with humility and discerning pride on INDEPENDENCE DAY  


and with a certain defiance this year to make it clear that Old Glory does not belong to HIM....  

but to WE THE PEOPLE


And in 2019 it bothers me that the Flag which should be a symbol of liberty and justice for all also flies outside the American prison camps for would be immigrants.
