We may as well fly flags at half mast every damn day because every damn day another senseless tragedy happens. And if nothing terrible happened today it’s likely something terrible happened on this day in the past. “What, you’re flying your flag at full mast when that those 22 U.S. exchange students drove off a cliff in Ghana 23 years ago today?!? Have you no soul?!?”
I predict the last day we’ll ever see a flag flying at full mast will be July 2nd of the year where a terrible tragedy happens on July 3rd and forces the nation to fly flags at half mast on July 4th, the ONE day of th year when America is supposed to proudly fly its flag the highest.
I say we fly the flag at FULL mast every day regardless of the events of the past with the understanding that we ALL sympathize and are compassionate towards any and all who have died in the past for no good reason and in no way does the high flying flag DISrespect those people but in every way it shows how resilient we are as a nation and how we celebrate life! 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸
