Respect for the American Flag

It is out of character for me to weigh in on anything controversial.  While I have my opinions, and they are strong ones too; I don’t like to offend others.  The older I’ve gotten, the more I realize that everyone has their own opinions, and they are completely entitled to them.  Moreover, we don’t have to agree on everything to be friends; in fact, many of my friends have different views than I.  The bottom line with me is, I don’t share my opinions because I’d much rather find common ground and be friends than not.

But…..and you knew there was a but coming…..it does bother me when the American Flag is disrespected and athletes choose to kneel during the National Anthem.  To me, the American Flag and the National Anthem represent the courage and sacrifice of the men and women that defend our country and freedom and equality for all.  Apparently I’m not alone because I found a couple coaches out there that weighed in on the recent debate:

While I was working on this post, I found an article that shared other ways to disrespect the American Flag.  Even though I knew that it should never be used as clothing, bedding, or drapery, I didn’t know it should never be used for advertising purposes.  Below is a link to article that you might find interesting:

Here’s another interesting piece of information, A Cleaner World cleans American Flags for free – every day.  Remember, one of the ways to honor the American Flag and our country is to keep our country’s colors looking solid and strong.  Regularly cleaning your outdoor American Flag will cause it to both last longer and maintain its vivid colors longer than those that are not properly cared for.  If your flag needs some special attention, drop it by one of our locations, and we will consider it an honor to clean it for you – free of charge.
