Flag Day is June 14...And We Fly It Proudly

 

Clearly etched in my memory is the period of time after the attacks of 9/11 when we as a nation came together. Part of that solidarity was the flying of our Flag and many wearing the flag on whatever we were wearing. 

 

You can learn more about Flag Day as well as Flag etiquette. 

 

 

For me, displaying the flay is more than raising it up a flag pole or placing it somewhere outside my home. 

 

I hope that I display how proud I am of My Country every day that I live by my acts and deeds. 

 

This is not a perfect country but what country or person is?  Elements exist that would divide us. But I do believe in the good people of this country to stand strong and come together as we always have. 

 

THAT is why I so proudly fly our FLAG on this and every other day.

Yes, I do remember the time after 9-11 when it seemed as though everyone was wearing or displaying the flag. When I was growing up , we had a flag pole and each day we raised it up in the morning, lowered and folded it in the evening. We have one now flying on our hill.

I am proud to be a US citizen, but I have never really flown a flag at my home.  I have never been one to decorate my vehicle with bumper stickers either, haha.

Sham Reddy CRS Thank you!!! Hope to see you at tomorrow's ZOOM meeting. 

Nina Hollander, Broker I love to see it wave!!! I thought I was going to have to get a fan out there because there was hardly any breeze when I took the photo.

I feel grateful to be living in our amazing country filled with good people with good intentions.  We're flying our flag high today...quite a few in our neighborhood are doing so and it so reminds me of after 9/11.  We decided to fly the flag more often this past year.

Thank you Kathy Streib for the reminder that it is my sister's birthday. She thought she was so special that everyone would fly the American flag on her birthday. I just got off the phone with her 🙂
