Hey! It’s Flag Day. The holiday kind of slipped my mind. But well, Flag Day isn’t exactly one of America’s “big holidays,” is it? Hence, I’m choosing to forgive myself.
After all, a holiday set forth by President Wilson in 1916 solely to commemorate America’s adoption of Old Glory as a standard in 1777 isn’t that relevant to people of today. But perhaps in these times it should be.
In times when Americans’ love of their nation and culture is decried as Nationalist and/or Populist, maybe we should drape ourselves in the flag whenever given a reasonable excuse to do so. Our domestic enemies already consider us deplorable and regularly call us fascists anyway. 😉
