I can remember when I was a small boy growing up in a small California farming and ranching town and it seemed like everywhere I went the AMERICAN flag flew from almost every buisness and home, as the years passed I noticed fewer and fewer flags flown. Then came September 11th a day I know I will never forget not just for what happened to us as a country but what it did in the fact that it seemed to pull us together as a country and I noticed that the AMERICAN flag was flying high and proud again from almost everywhere. I can remember feeling so very proud to be in this country. And now I look around and again I see fewer and fewer flags being flown, I was wondering what happened????
