For me it is a time to stop and think about all the men & women who have served, both living and not. Although memorial day and the festive weekend that precedes is full of parties and activities I would ask that we all take a moment and say a prayer and be thankful to those who have served our country and it’s citizens both home and abroad. Honestly for me personally there is never a time I look at the star spangled banner and not think about what it truly means and stands for. Whether is is at the beginning of a sporting event, motorsports race or whatever, maybe just riding down the road past a business… I will take a moment to reflect about what the flag means. I know it may sound crazy but I actually like that sound of the rope on a flagpole slapping the metal and making that clang-y echoing sound as the breeze blow.
I do take offense to people who disrespect our banner. I know it is their right and I’m ok with that. While they have the same freedoms I do I can fight back at them in a much nicer way. I don’t have to help them, talk to them, use their business… All I have to do is ignore them because Karma is a bitch.
So go out everybody, have fun and enjoy this wonderful land of the USA. Just take a moment to reflect, thats all.
Thanks for reading.
