Next time you see a flag at "Half Mast", ask yourself why it only flys for people that are "well known" or a major catastrophy that took many lives. Why is it not flown at "Half Mast" everyday a "soldier" gives his/her life? Is it because it would be up almost everyday? Is it because it would be to much trouble? My flag will fly at "Half Mast" until American military personnel are safe at home. i.e. probably until I die.

Thousands died in service to that flag.Thousands more carry wounds from service to that flag. How many WWI or WWII veterans do you think would appreciate the course this country has taken? Would they consider this country in distress,or would they feel that our government knows best? Has our government really defended our Constitution,or undermined it at every opportunity?
