There are some things that are actually important. The symbol of our country is the American Flag. Every nation in this world has a flag of their
own and flying it is the pride of every nation. As it should be.
If there is one position, one person, in this entire world that should understand the meaning of our flag, the importance of our flag, and what it
represents -- it is the freaking President.
We are separated by religion. We are divided by our political ideals. We are constantly battling sterotypes and walking a fine line of racial
equality. We are estranged by labels of have and have nots. We are faced with the growing challenge of accepting "outsiders", maintaining our
culture, while still respecting theirs.
There is but one thing that every American in this country has in common and one symbol that every American can proudly stand behind without fear of
offending another that stands beside us -- and that is the American Flag.
It is not
a piece of cloth. You should be ashamed for saying so and should apologize to every person that has lost their life defending the
right for our flag to fly
