Some things just break my heart. Disrespect for the flag of my country is one of those things. There's a code. The flag should be treated with utmost care and respect. A flag should NEVER be used for advertising, never touch anything beneath it, never be on or part of clothing, never be part of an athletic uniform (including at the Olympics). When worn and tattered it should be disposed of properly, preferably burned.
In the past I have found myself sitting silent when I am really totally offended by the inappropriate treatment of the American flag. But you know what? No longer. I am going to be heard and people are going to know how I feel about it. Of course I'll be poliet. I'm actually just betting most people don't even know it's against the code to drap themselves in the American flag. Flag day is 12 days away. Could you pass this information along and let's see how many people in this country we can teach we actually hav a flag code before flag day.
I often wonder when did we, as a nation, loose respect for our flag? The United States flag was adopted on June 14, 1777 and is the fourth oldest national flag in the world. June 14th was proclaimed Flad Day by President Woodrow Wilson in 1916 although it didn't get its official Congressional designation until 1949.
"The flag stands for all that we hold dear- Freedom, Democracy, Government of the people, By the people , And for the the people"- Henry Cabot Lodge, 1915
