So much focus on a flag……symbol of hatred, prejudice, suffering…….

So much of our energy centered on a piece of cloth….as if unweaving its threads could bind together the broken seams of our nation.

What about all the other unseen flags waving……

Waving over prisons where so many lives languish because of such diversity of wealth and wages in our nation……

Waving over homeless shelters where people fear the inside more than the outside streets…

Waving over courthouses where couples are denied legal status or parental rights because they are not the normal family…….

Waving over animal shelters where millions are put to death only for being alive…………Image

Hatred and prejudice doesn’t fly with a flag……it soars with hopelessness, anger, and inequality.

It makes no difference what flag flies, below or above the Mason Dixon Line.

Getting rid of a flag isn’t going to fix this nation….maybe getting rid of the unseen ones would……….then our nature will soar ………

Blessings,

Shirl
