I drove down a particular neighborhood street today, farther than I have for several years (due to detour, standing flood water, and construction).
I was pleased to see a good number of homes that had a full size flag pole in their front yards, flying Old Glory. Except one.
As I approached the house, I thought "how could they fly a flag so tattered and faded?" As I got closer, the truth was - in a word - revolting.
Each of the 50 stars was purposely cut/damaged with a gaping hole in each one. Each stripe was cut/ripped along every seam. Absolutely disgraceful. My heart sank.
Whomever did this to the flag, whomever lives in that house, is obviously off their cracker, I dare not approach the front door. So, I plan on sending an anonymous post card to tell them how offensive this is.
Any other suggestions???
