As befits Old Glory withAs befits Old Glory with Memorial Day near, I'd ask everyone to listen to or read the lyrics to "Ragged Old Flag" by Johnny Cash. It is not a long song, but in his own country manner, I think Johnny says a lot in a few words. His song ends with these words: "So we raise her up every morning, we take her down every night We don't let her touch the ground and we fold her up right On second thought, I do like to brag Cause I'm mighty proud of the Ragged Old Flag" Through his words, Johnny Cash touches the hearts of every American who has sworn to protect her and every American who has suffered or lost a loved one in her defense. Please have a happy holiday, but do not forget what Memorial Day is really about. Fly your Flag proudly, watch your local parade, thank a veteran or military member you know, and go to your local cemetary and care for the grave of a veteran whose family can't. You will feel the pride of being an American just as Johnny did every time he sang this song. You might just feel your heart skip a beat and find a tiny tear well up in your eyes. There are people behind our America who deserve this one small thought from those of us lucky enough to call ourselves American!
