Red, white, and blue; Does that offend you? (OneNewsNow.com)

Red, white, and blue; Does that offend you? (OneNewsNow.com).

Am I the only one missing this? The American Flag is our national flag that symbolizes our nation. The American flag is not an article of clothing that should be worn. If you want to show your pride in our country then make sure that the American Flag etiquette is followed when you are handling the flag or are around someone that is.

I understand that an article of clothing that is manufactured to be clothing is not an American flag itself. Nevertheless I believe that the American Flag should only be in one place and that is in a prominent location on a flag pole being proudly displayed.

I also believe that the American Flag symbolizes the blood of men and women of our armed forces who gave their lives so that we Americans might enjoy the freedoms that we have. I believe that the American Flag being draped across the casket of a fallen soldier who gave their life for their country is much more appropriate than someone wearing a piece of clothing that has red white and blue colors to school.

As for the teenagers wearing the “red white and blue” to school I think the school official made a bigger deal out of it than was necessary. Perhaps their doing that was in bad taste and poor judgement because the day was Cinco De Mayo day. Why can’t everyone be proud of their heritage and not worry about someone else showing some pride in their country. My hat is off to the teenagers not because they wore something symbolizing the American Flag but because they were showing some patriotism in support of their country.
