Flag Day

I doubt many Americans even remember Flag Day anymore.  I had forgotten, but that’s only because I’ve lost track numerically of the days.  I knew this was the Sunday after school ended and before the kids’ vacation started but that’s pretty much where I left off.  Had I said to myself, “This is June 14,” I would instantly have known that today is the day Americans honor their flag.

Bruce Kesler does remember that today is flag today, and he’s written a moving post about its role in his own personal history.  I hope all of you remember this day too.

(Interestingly, Google, which acknowledges so many special days, doesn’t seem to have known about flag day.  Their logo today is just the plain old Google logo.)
