2009.02.04 Jerry Randall: Upside down flag

Written by David Green. Posted in Letters

I’m writing in regard to the people of Fayette who think we should fly our flag upside down.

I have a paper showing and telling how to display our flag 18 different ways and none of them are upside down. Not even after 9-11 did I hear of anyone any place flying our flag upside down.

When we view the flag, we think of liberty, freedom and pride. The American flag has accompanied mankind on its greatest achievements. It flies at both poles, on the moon, and sits atop Mount Everest. The flag is how America signs her name.

If you’re unhappy with our country maybe you should move to another one. If you need a ride to the airport, call me, but don’t ruffle my feathers.
