A man reflects on why he puts up the American flag and the freedom it represents.
“Im putting up the flag because Charlie and I can do that here. We can disagree about politics or religion or whatever,” he says, “without either of us worrying that somebody will come haul us away.”
“We’re blessed in this country. Yeah, blessed. That’s why I’m putting up the flag.
“Then tomorrow, we’ll go to church and we’ll worship. And I’m putting up the flag because around here, you can think about God and talk about God and worship God, and nobody is going to tell you you can’t.”
“I’m putting up the flag because it’s a nice flag, for a nice place. It’s not a perfect place, not even close. But it’s my place. I’m glad it is.”
This is a reminder for all Americans about those who have fought, bled, and died for America–fighting for our freedoms so we could live in a blessed country.
Thank you, veterans, for then, now, and the future.
God bless the USA.
