WELL SAID

"An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us."
--U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan


In the confusion of our move our flag has gone missing, packed away in one box or another.

If you can find yours, fly it proudly today and forget about political animosity.

At least for one day.

Fitting for the occasion, under the circumstances.

Yes, well said.

I'd like to blame all the inflammatory rhetoric in DC and the news these days, but it is pretty much just another nut bag. Unfortunately there are a lot more out there.

joeh is correct, I think. it's a sign of the times, one we'll probably get used to, if we haven't already. We're a nation well divided, and with loonies on each side. Each one reinforces what we already believe. Something like this, a mass shooting on a day when there were two (!) others in the country, isn't going to bring us together. The gulf that divides us is deep and wide, and we make it larger every day..

My flag was hoisted even before the news of this tragedy broke. I hope the political rhetoric can become more civil, but for that to happen the current president, who unleashed so much hate in this country, needs to change his tune and stop attacking people.

I'm sorry if I'm about to put my foot in it, but June 14th? Is this an historical thing, or does it relate to recent tragedy?

Tom, Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which occurred on June 14, 1777. It is not an official federal holiday but people are encouraged to display the flag on that day.

Yes and please use proper flag etiquette.

Thank you for that.
