Our Flag, waving it, respecting it and
We proudly fly a flag. It's one of the type that fits in a brace on the side of a building wall. It's waving daily. Occasionally I forget to put it out. Occasionally I forget to take it down. Rarely have I ever left it out when it's raining. I love the American Flag. I love what it represents. I proudly served under it. I admire everyone else who has. I respect the sacrifices that have been made in its name.
I wanted to use a picture of the flag waving in the breeze. Enter my faithful Google. I found the one below and before I go on with the purpose of this post, I'd like to tell you about the picture.
I don't intentionally steal something that's been copyrighted nor do I plagiarise. I credit my source and try not to forget to provide a link to the originator. I found this picture and followed the link. This picture was part of an interesting story that includes information about this piece of art and blends with my reason for starting this post. I'll only include this part...
"Image Detail: Melinda Bula of El Dorado Hills, Calif., made this art quilt for her son serving in the U.S. Marines. It’s titled 'Our Flag Was Still There.' "
