My wife and I went to see a local parade last night in Fairlawn, Ohio. Most everyone was sitting in fold-up chairs, with some sitting on the curb, or on blankets. When the color guard came down the street, holding the American flag, the flag of our state, and the American Legion flag, most everyone on our side of the street stood up, the men removing their hats (like I was taught to do). But when I looked across the street and both ways, I could see that there were many who did not bother to get up, or remove their hats. I was kind of amazed and shocked, since this is the first time I had ever noticed anything like this. So, the question is: do you still stand up and show respect when the flag goes by? Or have you seen the same thing that I saw yesterday? Is this how the new generation is being taught? I am just very curious to hear some answers to this from around the country.
