'Ole Glory Coast to Coast' - Support Our Men & Women In Blue

This month Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho and Endre Barath, Jr. are hosting what is the most patriotic ActiveRain Challenge I can remember ActiveRain having.   The titled of this month's challenge is  'Ole Glory Coast to Coast' - June ActiveRain Challenge.  For this challenge Mark and Endre are asking us to post photos of different local flags and tell a little bit about them.

For my first entry I choose two flags which fly at the two most prominent building in my town, Middletown, CT.  The first is at our City Hall and the second was our County Superior Court House.   My second entry into this month's challenge, was of the flag flying at the front of my my home, which I am proud to fly the American Flag at our home year round. 

My third bonus entry is of a farm adjacent to the subdivision I live in, and I pass by several times a day.  We have other farms in the area, but this is the only farm who not only flies our proud American Flag, but also flies the police blue strip flag as well. 

Our police men and women have been under attack by a segment of our population who are the first to cry out for their protection when it is needed.  Instead of trying to de-fund these brave men and women, because of a very, very, very few bad apples, they should be calling out for more funding and training instead.

This entry concludes my three entries into this month's  'Ole Glory Coast to Coast' - June ActiveRain Challenge.

George Souto - I agree with you. Farmers are the backbone of our society and local police are there to serve and protect our communities. I also back the blue and pray for a restoration in faith to our police and our country.

Good evening George,

I love your entry into the June Challenge. The photos are wonderful and how awesome you pass by this several times a day. What an inspiring sight. I couldn't agree more with you "Instead of trying to de-fund these brave men and women, because of a very, very, very few bad apples, they should be calling out for more funding and training instead."

Hi George- love your final Old Glory post, especially your sentiments about our brave men and women in the police departments. It is hard to recruit and retain good officers...many work 2nd jobs to help with finances. And many are f frustrated because the criminals they apprehend are released on no bond so that they can go out and keep doing what they're doing.

This is a nice post, George.  I am the first generation in my family to not farm.  It is funny though, because I think a little of it is in my DNA.  I continue to grow too much food in my backyard.  But, my neighbors and family love it. 

I also agree we need to support our men and women in blue.

George Souto  I can say is amen to your last sentence :  Instead of trying to de-fund these brave men and women, because of a very, very, very few bad apples, they should be calling out for more funding and training instead.

Great post, George, and great message... I certainly second it!

Ole Glory definitely looks great flying next to those tractors, that is a really good shot you were able to capture!

George Souto I so enjoy seeing the 'Stars and Stripes' flying near some big equipment or construction site.  I agree with your post 100%.  It is so easy to criticize and knock down, rather than build and develop.   Mark
