Respect for the Flag
I am a member of our Rotary International club which meets on Thursdays. We begin each meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance. There is an elderly member who is confined to a wheel chair. I watch each meeting how he struggles to stand up for the Pledge and I wonder why finely toned athletes cannot stand or put their hands over their hearts to honor the flag.
I know this sentiment had been expressed before, but I watch how proudly this man tries to stand and I can't help but think how sad it is that others won't bother.
