Torn

January 12, 2017

Two men get out of their cars at a rest stop on I-90 in New York. Both noticed that the American flag was badly torn and ready to detach due to the wind and weather. It had probably been like that for weeks, yet no one bothered to fix it.

Both worked together to make sure that it was properly removed, folded, and stored. One man is a military veteran, the other is not. One voted republican, and the other democrat.

And yet – look what happens when folks work together towards a common goal. When people who have been polarized, meet in the middle to take action and to take responsibility when others will not. To restore respect for our country and our flag. 

Funny how that works. I want more.
