Flag Day


After yesterday's post, it's probably obvious that I have some complicated feelings about Flag Day . . .


Seeing our little town all decked out in the red, white, and blue evokes, for me, a kind of Norman Rockwell-ish glow . . .


And makes me hope that someday the flag truly will represent a nation --
 "indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

Yes of course Hillerman... les Anasazi, les Navajos "A thief of time."

I agree with your sentiment about the flag.

On another note, I woke up thinking how great our anthem is to have the words "dawns early light" immortalized, so everyone can remember the feeling.

Leaving my workplace this evening, I mentioned, as I wrote today's date on a document, that it was Flag Day. None of my younger colleagues knew what that meant.

I admit to having a bit of difficulty explaining it to them.

I'm late to this party Vicki. I truly hope your hope comes true. There is a problem to solve. We are an oligarchy not a democracy. Money rules.
