The American flag deserves our respect

This past Monday was Memorial Day. It’s a special time where many folks turn it into a weekend celebration. Cookouts, parties, patriotic singing, fireworks, it’s all part of the American way. I remember attending several of the Oakwood Elementary School programs on Memorial Day Monday. The kids singing, the quiet march through town as you made your way to the river and quietly tossed a flower in the muddy waters as you remember those who have past away. It was always a moving experience the school and the community shared together.
