There was a pronounced American flag display, in and out of the water, which is always good. I think it brings us all together in these trying times.
There’s something about the red white and blue that warms the heart…when we need heart warming the most.
After all is said and done, we are Americans, let’s remember that. And as Americans, we sometimes like to gather…and let it all hang out…together.
