It is what it represents

Today is Flag Day in the United States. The American Flag is only colored cloth and is not meant to be something that people worship. The American Flag is a symbol. It is iconic. It is not what it is but what it represents. It represents the nation, the people of the nation, the history of the nation and the future of the nation. In effect it represents you and it should be honored as a symbol of who we are. Regardless of your political party or your religion or lack of religion the flag means the same to all of us. If you have an American Flag make a point of flying it today. If you don't have an American Flag then take a few moments and think about what the flag means to you and our nation.
