I wonder if he would have been

That's cool the flag is still there.

Well, probably the Mexican flag would be okay, but not our American flag. Makes me scratch my head most days, but we both live in California and sometimes things are just nuts here.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hug to you and lots of scritches to Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

This is such a cool thing! I think we tend to over-think things today, make a fuss about every little thing, when we could much better put that energy into doing something positive for the world. Let's stop all the complaining!!! :-)

What a wonderful thing for him to do! We need young people who are passionate about their nation in a good way.

Wow, that is a great act of patriotism! It is sad to think that this probably wouldn't be allowed anymore.
