Freedom Flag

There seem to be two different views on the flag desecration issue. Some see it as a battle flag that symbolized those who fought and died for the United States. (That’s the United States, not America. I believe Mexicans fought for some American freedom as well…) I think that is awful. I don’t want our flag to symbolize war.

The other view is that it is a symbol of freedom. That I can agree with. If the U.S. flag is the great symbol of freedom, not being free to desecrate it makes it not a great symbol of freedom.

And my memory of the first people burning the flag were war veterans protesting. That would make both groups plans to make it illegal seem ridiculous.
