Greatness Comes In Simple Trappings

A US flag sat in the background and unwatched at an art show.

I was at DC Art-O-Matic and saw a whole lot of good and bad work, but a flag off to the side and outside caught my attention.

So much of the USA is going down the drain – people get crasser, stupider and more foolish and continue chipping away at national and individual dignity…listen to the words of the speakers, be mesmerized by more than the flag’s waves….these are good words on a potential state of the union.
