Last week’s Friday night high school football games fell on September 11, and I was very impressed by the students at the game I attended. Their respect for the American flag and National Anthem was real. No jeering, no pranks, and no one calling attention to themselves by taking a knee — just silence.
The tribute and recognition of September 11, 2001 was also treated with respect. None of the students were even born when this horrific event changed the course of history, yet they understood the significance of the date.
The respect for the flag and love-of-country is still alive!
Thought for the Day: Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.
