The problem is that some people do not understand why they are respecting our flag and anthem. What does it stand for?
Well to start it’s recognition that our country is the best in the world. To say the best, is not to say we are perfect, but we are still the best.
I served four years in the Air Force during the Korean War. I know that our country is not perfect, but I am still intelligent enough to understand how great this country is and what it stands for. Standing and saluting the flag and the anthem is not a custom, it’s an honor.
The flag and National Anthem are sacred and above politics. Singing and saluting them says that, although we have differences, we are still all one and together.
