The Federal Governent Believes the US Flag is Alive... Do You?{

By: Eddie Hill

Do you believe the American Flag is Alive? The next time you drive by that dealership with the fifty foot flag pole, look up and be sure to notice, the agile maneuvers of the flag. Some days she looks like a feather blown about with each wind of doctrine. Various days she looks as though she is shadow boxing, ducking and dodging, throwing out vicious jabs and uppercuts, popping and kicking with each burst of wind. Millions salute her, pledge loyalty to her; millions lay to rest under her, while their loved ones sob over her. So, ask yourself what is so unique regarding this dyed nylon rectangle with a gathering of figurative stars and stripes sewn on it? What is the flag’s purpose? What precisely does it signify? Well, the straightforward answer is, “to each his own”. For me, SHE represents my right to raise my children in the admonition of the Lord with no controversy. For me, she gives me the right to pursue happiness and the freedom to take pleasure in it once I catch it. For me, she symbolizes a solid foundation in which my family can assemble a life that’s more than abundant. For me, the flag’s principle is to build unity in the bond of peace. She also functions as a admonition to others who wish for to take that peace. For me, the flag represents the finer possessions of life… Football, Twinkies (with extra yellow #5) and Harley Davidson. As I said earlier, “too each his own” my lifestyle is a little more fast paced then that guy who wrote that patriotic song …baseball, apple pie and Chevrolet.
The national government already gave us our answer to my original question; Title 4 Section 8(j)… The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing. Therefore, the lapel flag pin being a replica, should be worn on the left lapel near the heart.

Is the American Flag living? Well, for this passionate Patriot… For me, the response is a definitive YES!
