I was thinking this morning how recognizable the American flag is. Its stars and stripes, a bright representation of where we started and what we’ve become boldly depicted in the red, white and blue of which we are so proud. Yet even when something happens to dim those colors, we remain steadfast. Plain as ever are the stars of all fifty states and the stripes of our fore-bearers. The icon is important, but the people it represents are what truly matter. It is our strength, our wisdom, our values and our love of humanity that lend the true brightness to our flag. Long may she wave!
