Flag Day in Small Town America by Pepper Phillips

June 14th


I had to drive to town today and the Lion’s Club placed the American Flag in telephone brackets lining the downtown streets in our small town. I took this picture in front of the District Attorney’s Office. It was remodeled several years ago and is a lovely addition to our downtown.

Seeing the flags fluttering in the breeze always makes me proud to be an American.

This special day was set aside in 1777 when the Continental Congress adopted a flag for our country.

But why do we only fly it on special occasions?  Shouldn’t we fly it every day?

The bracket on my front porch broke. But I’m buying a new one, it will be difficult to install, as I’m not allowed on ladders, but I’ll get one of the boys to install it for me, then I’m going to fly the American flag daily.

I’m proud to be an American.
