As mentioned in the previous post, our neighborhood hosts a flag ceremony at the local church. This year, kids brought out cardboard representations of many of the flags that have flown over this country. This one was brought out to represent the flag which was raised over the World Trade Center a few days following September 11, 2001. I remembered the feelings of unity and solidarity we had as a country and wondered why in the space of seven short years, those sentiments have so quickly disappeared.
