Today is Flag Day, a little remembered day, on which we give honor to our American flag. In recent years, we have seen our flag burned and dishonored in places throughout the world. And then, we feel the pride when the flag is raised over the Olympians at a medal award ceremony.
Flags are a symbol of a nation, of a group, of an organization and it expresses the values and purpose of that nation or group. It brings together in a visual image all that the designers want to express about a specific group.
Our red, white, and blue flag hangs at half-mast this week because one person was not able to hide contempt for others.
Today, let us give thanks for all the positive things our flag represents, especially the respect given to all. Jesus has asked us to love others as we wish to be loved. Let us do that today.
