Today is one of those "minor" holidays. No one gets the day off work because it's Flag Day and it's business as usual throughout the country. A few towns and cities across the nation have small parades or other community events to celebrate but it largely passes unnoticed by most Americans. And this "minor" holiday seems to become less important as the years go by.
The big question of the day, (at lest for me) is will President Obama observe this day? Will he even call attention to it?
But why would Obama care? He removed his American flag lapel pin. He doesn't hold his hand over
his heart during the playing of the anthem.
Forgetting to put on the flag pin is one thing. But making a "statement" by not wearing a flag pin is something else.
Does anyone need a reason for wearing a Flag pin? Well, let's see, how about if you are the President?
