Is the American Flag Alive?
The next time you drive by that car dealership with the hundred foot flag pole, look up and be sure to notice, the graceful maneuvers of the flag. Some days she looks like a feather blown about with every wind of doctrine. Some days she looks as though she is shadow boxing, ducking and dodging, throwing out violent jabs and uppercuts, popping and kicking with each gust of wind. Millions salute her, pledge allegiance to her; thousands lay to rest under her, while their loved ones cry over her. So, ask yourself what is so special about this dyed nylon rectangle with a bunch of symbolic stars and stripes sewn on it? What is the flags purpose? What exactly does it represent? Well, the simple answer is, too each his own. For me, SHE represents my entitlement to raise my children in the admonition of the Lord without controversy. For me, she gives me the right to pursue happiness and the privilege to enjoy it once I catch it. For me, she symbolizes a solid foundation in which my family can build a life that's more than abundant. For me, the flags purpose is to build unity in the bond of peace. She also functions as a warning to others who want to steal that peace. For me, the flag represents the finer things of life Football, Twinkies (with extra yellow #5) and Harley Davidson. As I said earlier, too each his own my lifestyle is a little more fast paced then that guy who wrote that patriotic song, baseball, apple pie and Chevrolet.
The federal government already gave us our answer to my original question; Title 4 Section 8(j); The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing. Therefore, the lapel flag pin being a replica, should be worn on the left lapel near the heart.
Is the American Flag alive? Well, for this zealous Patriot; For me, the answer is a definitive YES!
