Angel over at Woman Honor Thyself reminded me that today is Flag Day! She has quite a line-up and post about it, so head on over and get educated! And entertained, too. LOL
And where are the rest of the Bloggers? Are we too busy to say something regarding Flag Day? Hmmm?
And the Flag is also the shroud we use to honor the brave Men and Women who lose their lives in service to the Nation. Although the US government has tried to keep images such as this one from the public eye, this image is no disgrace. It is a sad fact of life, and a reminder that Freedom - Liberty - is not free. There is a price to pay in blood and the lives of the very best among us.
Though America-haters in our own nation have tried to use images such as this to sap our will, and weaken us from within, they cannot succeed as long as we keep our wits about us. We know that Liberty cannot exist in a vacuum. It must be fought for, defended, taught.
The image of US Flag-draped coffins is not what we Americans want to see. But we will not shrink from the sight as the cowards would have us do. Should the day arrive that sees Americans unwilling or unable to stand in defense of Liberty, then the nation will have already died.
GOD Bless the United States of America! GOD Bless the US Flag!
