The American Flag at the DNC ~ Can You Find One?

Some have been playing a game called “Where’s The Flag?” trying to find an American flag as part of the theme of the Democratic National Convention.  They really searched.  They searched high and they searched low, outside, inside, and inside out.  Nope.  Nothing.

But as evidenced by the photo above, well, they finally found some.

There has been a lot said about the American flag when it comes to Mr. Obama.  There’s the discussion about the flag on his campaign plane (so small it has to magnified to be photographed),his reluctance to wear a flag pin or to place his hand over his heart during the national anthem, and I just posted a picture of William Ayers, Obama associate from Chicago, standing on the American flag.  See here:


The flag represents the government of the US and its policies; but it also represents the promise as yet unfulfilled of the Declaration, it represents our freedom of speech, our freedom to practice or not practice religion as we choose, it represents American values, it represents one nation in its glory, it represents hope for a better future, and importantly it represents the sacrifices made in all generations to protect our freedoms.
