There are so many things going on in our country today, there
doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day to grasp it all. The
elections, demonstrations, illegal immigration, government
regulations, jobs, home foreclosures, our boys scattered all over
the world trying to keep one country from killing another, or us.
The basis for this is freedom.
Everyone has their own ideas on how to solve any one of these, and
there is a lot more problems than what I listed.
I heard a story on the news, about a resort hotel firing an
employee because he refused to stop wearing his American Flag pin.
Such a small item, and after all, it did state in the
companies' policy book that employees shall not wear any pins,
badges, patches, etc., on their uniforms. This is a microcosm of
what's going on in our country. Step by step, little by little we're
forgetting how to be Americans. This is America, isn't it?
Maybe, little by little, people or companies should start
reversing these minute, and meaningless rules, to show they are
Americans. If we personally are not restricted to wear the American
Flag on our clothing, why don't we? Why don't we want to show
everyone that we're proud to be Americans, in spite of our problems.
It's such a small, small thing to do.
So, I've put an American Flag on the front page
of this web site to show I am an American, and I don't want to this
country to forget what American stands for. Also, I'm going to start
wearing that small American Flag pin on my clothing. I even might
get a sticker for my car.
After all, this is America, isn't it?
