Despite the political unrest and division in our nation, we are a union. Our greatest symbol of freedom, the American Flag, represents not only what we have, but what we have lost to maintain our independence. Though we are independent as a nation and individuals who act independently, we are American — we know what is right and it is our duty to do what is right. Sometimes we need to repair what is damaged. Let this act of tending to the weather-worn fabric remind you of what/who you could improve in your surroundings today.
Thank you, Veterans. Thank you, America.
