I have had a very long love affair with the Stars and Stripes. I guess it began when I lived in Germany for 2 years in my 20s and got very homesick to see our country and the flag flying. I remember one time in particular ,when I was at a special event and they unveiled a huge American flag. We all stood at attention almost in awe and sang the Star Spangled Banner -except as I looked around their was not a dry eye in the crowd. I realized just what this flag meant to us as Americans and how we all missed our homeland. I have never looked at a flag without remembering those goose bumps. No matter where you are in this big world their is nothing like seeing those colors of our flag. Several years ago when visiting Washington DC I visited the flag that was flown when The Star Spangled Banner was written - how tattered and old ,but it still brought such pride in my heart. Just like it did for Francis Scott Key as he wrote those famous words.
I urge you to Fly your Flags,wave them high this week because THIS is the greatest country on earth!
