Forever in peace may it wave....

American Flag
Flag myths and July 4th myths aside, it's a celebration of worthy ideas and ideals. That we fall short of them at times does not change fact that I'd rather be alive here and now than any other time or place in history I can think of.

I enjoyed all of those essays and I too wrote a piece about the pure reasons for a holiday, however, you are exactly right. When it comes right down to it....it doesn't matter about the why or when....what matters is the how. We had a patriotic program at church on Sunday and it was one of the most moving services.
