Today is Flag Day - Hang 'Old Glory' Proudly
While Americans hang out their flag for Flag Day, a time of recognition of what the stars and stripes stand for...
...including the hard-fought freedoms won by our troops...
...liberals in Congress are urging the Senate to reject S.J. Res. 12, a constitutional amendment that would ban desecration of the flag.
Senators Patrick Leahy, (D-VT), Russ Feingold, (D-WI), and Edward Kennedy (D-MA) voiced their opposition to the resolution to the Senate which is expected to consider the Flag Desecration Amendment soon.
Q: What do you think? Does a ban on desecrating the flag infringe on our freedoms? Yes or No?
I don't know how many flags our family has gone through because of weather-fading, but it's also a great feeling to display 'Old Glory', whether old or new, and Flag Day is a great time to hang a new one...a big one...proudly.
